http://www.alexandermcqueen... - The Alexander McQueen Menswear 2015 Spring/Summer Collection

Tailoring is slashed on the revere or under the pockets, reworked as panels to reveal vivid red lining on long and lean coats and suit jackets. An abstracted Kabuki pattern is the dominant and recurring motif featured throughout the collection. It is used all-over, as an asymmetric placement or stripped back to just a single block of colour. There is a play on the scale of three classic menswear fabrics -- the Houndstooth, Birdseye and Prince of Wales check, used in combinations as a new type of patchwork or woven as jacquards in the abstracted Kabuki pattern. The construction of suiting has been pared back, either completely free or half-lined and occasionally with a slight shoulder pad to give just enough structure. Silhouettes are oversized or elongated and trousers are cut wide and loose or drop crotched and skinny. The use of trompe l'oeil gives the perception of layering -- waistcoats over coats and field jackets or black and white colour block knee high socks to give the effect of leggings worn under shorts.

McQ Alexander McQueen Play

McQ, a contemporary brand from Alexander McQueen, distils the vision of Creative Director Sarah Burton into collections that embody an urban, young London.

Rooted in the renegade spirit of Lee Alexander McQueen who founded the brand in 2005, McQ has an independent and rebellious spirit that sets it apart from its contemporaries. Drawing on the rich design archive of Alexander McQueen, McQ offers a relaxed, raw interpretation of the house codes.
