Alexander McQueen is the King of all things innovative. Pushing the boundaries with visuals, movement, colour, shape and material, his themes always surprise and captivate. I found myself melting into his couture landscape when writing a feature on him for Husk Magazine recently (set to be published in January 2010.) His ready-to-wear menswear is surprisingly low key though in comparison to the avant-garde creations he makes for women of the runway. This isn’t to say the clothes aren’t impressive however. There’s a mix of era’s stitched into the wardrobe, from ‘old school’ blazers, bomber jackets that funnel up to the neck, offbeat ruffles and drapes in the shirts, and even a thick indulgent ski jacket thrown in for unexpected measure. He’ll continue to be the designer I’m always excited about.
