LONDON FASHION WEEK AW12: Day 4 – it’s all about McQ

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

The McQ label had become known for wearable pieces, lots of print and jersey, with McQueen motifs to appeal to a younger, less cash-rich customer. McQueen recently bought back its own license with the intention to design McQ inhouse and focus on the rebellious youthful codes of tartan, punk, denim, kilts and other signatures we associate with the British brand.
