Alexander McQueen Pre-AW20 – British art nouveau & a restrained elegance of modernism

26.06.2020 | Fashion | BY:

This week British fashion house Alexander McQueen unveiled their Pre-AW20 collection crafted by Creative Director Sarah Burton under themes of British art nouveau and arts and crafts paired with a restrained elegance of modernism. The collection features 41 looks with a refined colour palette of silver, gold, copper and reds throughout as they tell a story of the earth’s core and the treasure hidden beneath them. With this collection Burton comes bearing gifts of the team’s expert tailoring with sharply cut hems, tightly closed seams and even some draping. A simple black leather asymmetric drape coat speaks for itself with accents of gold metal staple detailing,  so does a gold double-faced metallic rib knit dress, as it’s paired with a crochet mesh skirt, an amethyst silk satin dress with a fluid cape back and gold are nouveau twisted iris embroidery gives a subtle yet power effect.

As always each piece from the collection is a testament to the power of womanhood as they are crafted with the level of dexterity that creates silhouettes demands the attention of a room while adding touches of delicacy with soft colour palettes, embroidery and draping.

The collection carries a wide variety of interchangeable separates including nylon windbreaker, embossed cycling shorts, satin blousons, embossed leather outerwear, sweatshirts, denim pants compact knits, printed denim pants , to even luxurious featherweight fur coats and cardigans and perforated leather jackets, all given that special splash of a tropical Californian vibe.

15.01.2015 | Fashion | BY:

So little time, so much to love – Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection is filled with lust-worthy items for your autumn wardrobe. The twins have created a statement collection using their trademark pared-back luxury. This year, zip closures, zigzag stitching such as is found on wetsuits, and fabrics backed with scuba material are all a subtle nod to 50s and 60s Californian surfing culture. Favourites include a high-necked navy dress over matching slim-cut trousers, paired with sandals; a cream tunic over a knee-length skirt; and a camel ensemble consisting of culottes, shirt and masculine-style coat. Cool, understated perfection.
