menswear collections: alexander mcqueen, fall

by Jeremy Danté

presenting military structure & a recognizably more tamed style aesthetic, the designs of sarah burton have officially infiltrated the house of mcqueen. i love how structured the designs are & was very impressed with the multi-layered coats as well as the details of layering & the powerful palette. the most refreshing aspect of the collection was the meteoric use of yellow against the enlarged collared coat in runway look no. 9- stunning & incredibly inspiring for fall. classic menswear pieces were seen in the collection as hints of texture, plaid & velvet were used. my favorite piece of the collection is the satin coat, look no. 27 although i love the leather cape/coat as well. the collection has a strong direction while the styling is not exaggerated rather silently represented through striking concepts. solid direction, understated & elegant- handsome designs for the fall.
