In this day and age, you may find “streetwear” labels attempting to move up the ranks of fashion into what would be formally considered “designer.” At McQ by Alexander McQueen, you will see quite the opposite. McQ is the younger brother label to the storied Alexander McQueen brand, who’s legacy lies in its theatrical and fantasy driven clothes and runway shows. Considering the house of the late McQueen, now headed by Sarah Burton, has more than checked off the “high-fashion” box, McQ’s focus is visibly on creating wearable street-ready looks. So for every radical stitch that the Alexander McQueen main label produces, McQ provides the laid-back, casual-cool London youth counterpart. Without losing the dark and romantic McQueen identity, the McQ Autumn/Winter 2015 collection gives us relaxed silhouettes with eerie TV-static prints, zip details reminiscent of punk bondage, choppy collaged graphics, distressing and degradé.
