Alexander McQueen's 2016 Fall/Winter Collection Explores the Fine Line Between Fashion and Art
Surrealist concepts decorate silhouettes that range from tailored jackets to beaded slips.
In typical Alexander McQueen fashion, the late British designer’s eponymous label debuted a 2016 fall/winter collection at London Fashion Week filled with plenty of nature-inspired and mythical references that once again oscillate the fine line between fashion and art. Employing surrealist aesthetics, fur-lined overcoats were emblazoned with clock graphics while others were printed with butterflies and flora. Pieces played with a diverse array of textures that included fur-trimmed shoes, beaded slips and delicate lace. The silhouettes themselves were also wide-ranging and seemed to explore the many intricacies that make up the designer’s creative range. From impeccably tailored suit jackets to transparent frocks that leave little to the imagination, Alexander McQueen’s latest collection is another dynamic and stunning delivery from the fashion house.
