Work Alexander McQueen’s dramatic aesthetic in the most effortless way by investing in signature skull scarves, leather wallets and dark, gothic-inspired sunglasses. Named Designer of the Year at the 2011 British Fashion Awards, the tough, the brand’s creative director, Sarah Burton, has only propelled its revered reputation since her appointment in 2010. A roaring success and an emotional homage to late designer, Lee McQueen, the label gained global acclaim with an exhibition at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, titled “Savage Beauty”. Spanning the designer’s career, from his 1992 MA graduate show to his unfinished AW10 collection, it showcases some of the label’s most identifiable pieces and asserts just why the designer is still so present in each and every collection. To others it might just be another silk square, but when you’re wearing a McQueen scarf or carrying a McQueen wallet then, and only then, can you truly appreciate the wonder and awe that is Alexander McQueen.
