McQ Alexander McQueen Fall 2013

Mar 13 2013 - 3:20pm

It's only his second collection for McQ Alexander McQueen [1], but Alistair Carr has long since hit his stride. His use of the Prince of Wales check is a spot-on trend, but he infused the McQueen aesthetic by applying it to motorcycle jackets and suits covered in the screen-printed stripes of a tiger.

That idea — letting the codes of the the company's more expensive label inform what goes on in its secondary collection — seems to be guiding Carr's work. The nipped-in waist and wide, metallic belts Sarah Burton has been showing in the main collections appeared here, too, most notably on a wide-sleeved sweater dress and in a black-and-red double-breasted coat.
