Alexander McQueen S/S 2014 menswear collection
Designer Alexander McQueen marked his fourth death year anniversary this week; whilst this week has been mournful, the brand is far from dead.
Alexander was credited as one of the most innovative and creative designers in Britain who never ceased to amaze; he caused controversy and had a reputation to horrify an audience with his rebellious ways.
The British designer launched a rather cinematic, noir film that showcased their spring/summer 2014 menswear collection. The gothic references to the iconic McQueen skull scarf print were seen in the rather dark and gloomy film.
The black-and-white imagery was accompanied with heavy orchestral chimes, which gave unsettling vibes; the runway show was also shown from a bird’s-eye perspective, as if it was being watched from above.
The iconic McQueen skull has been reworked into lace-printed pieces in the film, the embroidered black roses and washed silk, cashmere and cotton all engineered seamlessly to produce a rather frayed and unique collection.
