Alexander McQueen's Mens Spring 2013 Collection is AwesomeWritten by Celia Evans 01 July 2012
Let's give major props to Sarah Burton, the creative director at Alexander McQueen. She is seriously kicking ass. Although at this point everyone knows she's awesome (She designed Kate Middleton's wedding dress, and she won the Designer of the Year at the 2011 British Fashion Awards). We are in love with her latest menswear collection. Her inspirations were Marc Bolan, Lucian Freud, Picasso, William Powell, and to the German conductor Herbert von Karajan. Think aristocratic artists of the 1940's. "Male vanity," said Sarah Burton. The designer mentioned Dorian Gray and Visconti's Death in Venice as reference points. The mood of a decadent old Europe was captured as well.But Burton was keen to point out that such historical references hardly did the collection full justice. "We wanted to make this collection more graphic," she said. "More real." To that end, there was a new, more relaxed feel in the tailoring. We thought was elegant and confident.
