Alexander mcqueen present fall men’s collection in milan

by Stephen Garner

Alexander McQueen debuted a beautiful collection in Milan on Sunday inspired by nature and the drawings of English artist Henry Moore.

Wool-silk suits and coats in shades of deep orange and carnelian red printed with Moore’s Three-Quarter Figure 1928 (reproduced courtesy of the Henry Moore Foundation) was the highlight of this collection’s inspiration, while standout items included tailored evening jackets and overcoats that gleam from art nouveau sequin embroidery.

A double-lapelled jacket, along with several other sharply tailored jackets worn with leather military harnessing act as a new take on wearing tailored clothing. Oversized knits in wool and mohair feature the brand’s iconic, yet abstract sculptural skulls, and an exploded Argyle-flag motif.

Double-breasted overcoats and tailored suits are precision cut with sharp darted panels in flint grey and coal-black Donegal tweeds, inspired by minerals, rocks, and stones are another great highlight.
