The name of the extraordinary British designer Alexander McQueen is associated with provocation and drama. His collections of clothes, footwear, and accessories were distinguished by defiantly sharp style, and his fashion shows were deliberately theatrical, which, in addition to the designer's personal charisma, quickly made his name famous in fashion circles. Alexander McQueen is known for amazing shows that revealed his versatility and love of experimentation, he was repeatedly named British Designer of the Year, he was awarded the Order of the British Empire, and finally, he created the eponymous fashion house, which continues to influence fashion trends to this day, led by Sarah Burton - a close friend and colleague of the designer.
The history of the Alexander McQueen brand began in 1992 with the support of the influential fashion stylist and editor Isabella Blow, who spotted a talented and promising young designer with an unconventional take on ordinary things. McQueen's subsequent work justified these hopes: for a decade, the designer created a big name for himself, stood at the helm of Givenchy and Gucci, created collections for his namesake fashion house together with Sarah Burton, who, after the designer's death, took over the leadership and development of the brand in all areas, including McQ by Alexander McQueen.
McQ is the alternative clothing line of the British fashion house by Alexander McQueen, created in 2005 and embodying the spirit of London's grunge aesthetics. The brand's contemporary collections are created by Sarah Burton, who continues to evolve a one-of-a-kind style set by the Master by invoking the brand's fashion codes: punk and rock and roll styles, photographic prints, and bold innovative designs. The McQ line provides an opportunity to collect a complete look in a unique style of the brand, which combines the trends of street fashion and laconic aristocracy, both in clothing and in accessories. McQ's SS 2021 eyewear collection offers gender-neutral styles in transparent and colored UV-protective glasses which enhance the style by adding to any look something special.
Being the democratic brand with more freedom of expression than the mainstream Alexander McQueen line, the McQ brand continues to convey the story of the brand's talented founder, a story of personality, and a reimagined philosophy of London youth translated through the Spring/Summer 2021 eyewear collection.
