Dank Alexander McQueen dürfen wir uns in prachtvolle Gewänder aus Stickerei hüllen und das zu jeder Tageszeit. Die Kollektion der Pre Spring/Summer 2018 ist geprägt durch kräftige Farben kombiniert mit liebevoll dekorierte Perlenstickerei die an Ornamente aus 1001 Nacht erinnern. Ob Pullover, Röcke, Jacken oder Mäntel und Handtaschen, bei diesem Trend mache ich gerne mit! Who else?
The washed taffeta styles from the Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2018 pre-collection are inspired by deconstructed 1950s couture detailing and lingerie and adorned with multi-coloured jewelled garden embroidery. The ‘petticoat’ inspired skirts are voluminous, gathered and frilled and feature a large bow on the waist. The high-waisted yoke on the skirt and the bra top are made in a patchwork of power net jacquard and Chantilly lace. #McQueenPreSS18 #AlexanderMcQueen
An oversized, long-sleeved, lust red jumper with contrast colour, zipped knitted sleeve inserts is crafted in extra fine merino wool in rib and jersey. The jumper has a crew neck, roll-up cuffs and an asymmetrical hem. True to the spirit of the Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2018 Pre collection, it draws upon the concept of heirlooms: a young woman taking treasured paste pieces from her grandmother’s jewellery box and densely hand-embroidering them onto her father’s cherished sweater, say. #AlexanderMcQueen #McQueenPreSS18 #McQueenBoxBag
Who is ready to sparkle into the Spring?
Thanks to Alexander McQueen that we all can sparkle, no matter if it`s day or night. The Pre Spring/Summer Collection shows high end embroidery on sweathers, skirts, dresses and jackets.
Inspired by 1950s lingerie, a trompe l’oeil corset dress features petite rose silk brocade jacquards woven tonally in lust red and petal pink, pieced and panelled with tonal power mesh and linked with alternating bands of crinoline at the hem. The knit is fully fashioned – it has no seams. The seam lines that are visible are incorporated within the jacquard technique: they are faux seams designed to echo the lines of corsetry. A vertical knitted ribbon with machine feather-stitch embroidery in a contrast colour also features. This is made separately before being sewn onto the garment. It takes roughly one hour to knit two metres of embroidered ribbon. Made in soft, blush pink lambskin leather with silver-plated metal hardware, the jacket worn over it here is lined in silk twill. Both from the Alexander McQueen Pre Spring/Summer 2018 collection, photographed on location in London during the shooting of the look book. #McQueenPreSS18 #AlexanderMcQueen
