After a season’s break, Alexander McQueen returns to the runway with the usual theatrics subdued. Tightly wound to create tension, the enigmatic collection sets the stage with intense camouflage, balaclavas and drastic silhouettes. Appearing as if doused in a spontaneous yet rhythmic sequence of prints, McQueen breathes life into a mysterious character that brings with him uncertainty and excitement. The results are a playful mix of unorthodox shapes that capture McQueen’s genius and imagination, while also coinciding harmoniously with the collection’s more grounded pieces. Altogether, Mcqueen’s fall outing adds a generous vitality to suiting and outerwear through prints, before progressing forward with boxy cuts, textured inserts and layered proportions.
