Never does Lee’s face leave my mind when the talk or view of fine craftsmanship, Britain, or sheer talent comes into a conversation – may he rest in peace.
Alexander McQueen’s Spring Summer by Sarah Burton Nevertheless, having it in Sarah Burtons hands, It’s like a twine wrapped onto an oak tree, as similar to Burtons pieces on the statuesque models. Taking the show off the runway this season, Harley Hughes (McQueen’s head of menswear design) decided to present the collection via a series of intimate, and distinctive images photographed by Julia Hetta.
For Alexander McQueens Spring Summer 2017 collection, envision a London lad, taking a stroll down Savile Row, where Lee McQueen first learned the tricks to the trade, in a look that references clean English tailoring, with details that allude to the times of Imperial India. Edges of sweaters, and jackets involved embellishments, and embroidery done in gold threads – think of a modern maharaja.
I’d have to say that Alexander McQueen’s SS17 collection is my favorite this season. I mean the pieces refer to a significant time, mainly through the brands aesthetic; it’s psychedelic, with a vintage feel to it. In retrospect to that, modernity is never a missed aspect – from pairing clean white sneakers, to the clip on facial jewelry.
