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.


Accessory Spotlight: Backpacks from Givenchy, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and McQ

  • Givenchy Backpacks
  • 3.1 Phillip Lim Backpacks
  • McQ Backpacks

If you’re anything like us, you’re constantly on the go and with none other than a backpack hanging over your shoulder. But we’re not talking about classic cotton bags from our school years. Our favorite designers have taken it upon themselves to redefine the notorious carry-all. Givenchy gives us all-black options from two sides of the spectrum. One a sleek street-inspired neoprene leather combination and the other a heavy-duty all leather option featuring the house’s signature Obsedia hardware. For the minimalists, 3.1 Phillip Lim offers a pragmatic but stylish take on a structured backpack in both black and cement grey. While Lim purposely chooses not to add heavy branding to the 31 Hour series, the criss-crossed adjustable straps distinguish the bags. McQ finishes our accessory roundup with an uncomplicated silhouette. Both the coated ombre denim and the color blocked all leather backpack demonstrate thoughtful details.
