Innovative, emotional, uncompromising—all words that describe the romantic and provocative fashion of Alexander McQueen, a brand that's become synonymous with modern British couture. Integral to the Alexander McQueen culture is the juxtaposition between contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity. An openly emotional and even passionate viewpoint is realized with a respect for the arts and crafts tradition, a profound influence on the brand.
British couturier Alexander McQueen crafts romantic, provocative clothing, shoes and accessories for women, men and kids. Its oversized sneakers seem to be everywhere these days, as chunky shoes make a statement in street style. One of the brands most iconic pieces is its skull scarf, an edgy yet accessible accessory that shows off McQueen's signature juxtaposition of contrasts.
