AW11 press day highlights part 6: McQ by Alexander McQueen

The McQ AW11 collection is being produced in-house for the first time since PPR took back control of the brand from the licencee. It looks like McQ is going to stick to a signature, punk-flavoured ‘London’ look, referencing key youth culture themes – tartan, denim, kilts, schoolgirl blazers. The quality is great and I was told that the price would be slightly more accesible than previous collections.

These jackets are special customised pieces ‘mainly for press’. I’m not entirely sure whether that means they won’t go into production or whether they’re to order only…

Luxe-looking school blazers

Mini kilt

Love this storm print

The accessories offer is huge

Nearly fell on these ponyskin creepers. Beautiful.

Posh-punk studded pumps

    It would be shame if that sleeveless mens jacket won’t be available for buying. I fell in love.

    I love McQ, and much as I hate my school uniform, when it comes from here, I suddenly want to own it all…
    Perhaps McQ should design for real school uniforms?

    Oh Lucy, I’ve been tracking them down too. The McQ press office said Liberty, Harrods and Selfridges. Didn’t see them in Liberty but will check Harrods/Selfridges next!
