Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2018-2019 collection

The collection takes as its starting point the elegant modernism of the British male, with references as diverse as the tailors of Savile Row to the styles favoured by the pony kids of Ireland. The look is restrained, balanced, committed, authentic; utilitarian but seductive nonetheless: sober tailoring, tidy ties, shrug-on trench coats, cable knits and fuss-free lace-up boots or trainers.

Alexander McQueen's Tailored Suits and Dramatic Looks at Paris Men's Fashion Week

The Alexander McQueen show for Spring/Summer 2019 was one of the best in terms of originality and style while still staying true to the brand’s design aesthetic, not forgetting the subtle inclusion of the unexpected, which is always a treat for the eyes. A very strikingly cool combination of razor sharp classic silhouettes vs a totally edgy biker-esque attitude made for interesting bedfellows to start with. The collection had a grunge glam kind of essence that moved between each ensemble with an energy that just had everyone’s attention.

The GmbH show was not only unique but had that special eclectic quality while being relevant, fun and fashion-forward.

It was personalised and pleasurable.

Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2018 collection

Tailoring starts out clean, almost puritanical; austere. Precisely cut double-breasted jackets are worn over ivory leather bib-fronted shirts with slim fitted trousers finished with a broad, leather stripe. Long tailored coats with peak lapels and equally pared down trouser suits are cut in bonded black and scarlet leather. Outerwear is re-constructed: pieced and patched in camel and differing scales of Prince of Wales check in graphic shades of black, scarlet and ivory. An oversized cotton gabardine trench coat is reversed and inset with a wool silk jacquard patchwork of contrasting check. Cotton broderie anglaise shirts are paired simply with white poplin cropped trousers or layered with Fair Isle-inspired knits, one of which is pieced and patched together from socks, the once heel now forming the elbow.

The etiquette of wearing tailor-made suits by Phillip Alexander

A good suit communicates respectability and style; and is a statement of status and authority. But only if it’s done correctly. Knowing the correct etiquette of what, how and what not to wear for an occasion, is important. So the correct style, colour and fabric of a suit for a particular occasion may need to be selected carefully. If it hasn’t been thought through properly, there is a danger of just looking foolish in a fancy suit. Phillip Alexander have vast knowledge and experience in advising their customers on the correct tailor made suit to wear and most important, what not to wear.

The journey of the menswear collection begins in 1960s swinging London and moves to a dusty exotic world. Traditional, sharply cut Savile Row tailoring in sober shades gradually becomes more exotic and opulent, inspired by India during the Empire period, where the palette and iconography is fully embraced, from safari colours to sun-bleached leopard prints and exotic landscapes to ornate embroideries. Jewellery fit for a Maharaja reference the lavishness of the time and the spirit of the 60s adds a dandified irreverence to the collection.

Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2016 - The elegance of men

Charles Darwin in 1859 gave us a theory of evolution, the science of natural selection, an argument for the ‘survival of the fittest’, and a story of how man triumphs. He was an avid explorer in his youth, travelling the world for field study, discovering and collecting specimens, making a Victorian enquiry into who we are. For Autumn/Winter 2016, the collection embraces the spirit of travel and a world newly open to exploration and the gathering of collectibles, but in the way of the McQueen tradition of flora, fauna and memento mori. This is a collection obsessed with the elegance that ‘survives’ the struggle for life.

Those beautiful stones...

Alexandrite
Alexandrite is a rare variety of Chrysoberyl. Alexandrite was discovered near Ekaterinburg in the Ural Mountains in Russia in 1830, and was named after Alexander II. Other sources now include Sri Lanka, Burma, Brazil, Zimbabwe, Madagascar and North America. The important feature of Alexandrite which makes it highly unusual and collectable amongst gemstones is its strong color change when viewed in different lights. Many other stones show a similar property, but nowhere as strongly, and not with such highly contrasting colors.

Alexander Serafimoff illustrates his knitted dresses with colourful landscapes and animals

Alexander Serafimoff is a russian designer who creates knitted dresses illustrated with colourful landscapes and animals. He uses "%100 natural" yarn (sheep's and llama's wool as well as cotton).

"It definitely seems to me that nowadays the 100% organic yarn is not existing on sale. At present, if you see (at the label of yarn) an inscription "100%" you should realize that it's implying no more than 95%. The "hidden" rest (from 5% to even 10%) contains viscose, lavsan and so on -- "things" that make the knitwear made by "natural" yarn more "yielding springing" and less creased. Therefore I have to say that my "organic" knitwear is APPROXIMATELY organic..."
