Alexander McQueen women’s A/W 2016 collection at London Fashion Week

McQ’s latest collection showcases black and rose-pink. Exquisite work by Sarah Burton features transparencies, embroideries, straight lines, pleats, fur and babydoll dresses in pink and flesh tones that bring us back to the decadence of French cabaret and the Thirties.

McQ’s latest collection showcases black and rose-pink. Exquisite work by Sarah Burton features transparencies, embroideries, straight lines, pleats, fur and babydoll dresses in pink and flesh tones that bring us back to the decadence of French cabaret and the Thirties.

Three-quarter length coats with printed butterflies or clocks recall MCQ’s dark and rebellious side. The ultimate in elegance is mixed with an ironic mood linked to punk rock where black leather reigns supreme, softened by lapels or fur collar coats, transparencies, and fresh and romantic embroideries.

Frills, pleats, straight-cut pants and asymmetrical lines dominate in McQ’s newest collection; fit for a punk princess styled with a diplomacy and sophistication.

Jewellery such as silver chains and crowns add a young, defiant and sexy touch. The perfect accessories for a woman wearing any of Alexander McQueen’s autumn/winter 2016 collection designs.
