Rebellious but romantic, iconic but ultra-modern, elegant but inspired by British punk iconography…It is all about Alexander McQueen, the legendary fashion house that was founded in 1992. The father of the brand, Lee Alexander McQueen, was driven by a highly personal vision and a respect for both time-honored craftsmanship and experimentation. Famous for his highly original designs that combine artistry with unbeatable technical ability, the brand is extremely popular among world-famous celebrities and royalty. For many years, Alexander McQueen has retained the title of the red-carpet designer, dressing Hollywood stars, like Madonna, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sandra Bullock, Lady Gaga, Cameron Diaz, Rihanna, Elle Fanning, and many-many more famous names.
The designs from Alexander McQueen are a constant confrontation between the feminine and the masculine, love and fight, human and device, that results in vivid styles with exclusive, one-of-a-kind details. The brand borrows elements from the Gothic, Roman, and Victorian eras and frequently incorporates dark colors, heavy fabrics and fragile embellishments like lace and embroidery. Among the most famous McQueen's motifs is the skull, which can be seen on the brand’s accessories, such as bags, jewelry pieces and eyewear. The skull-patterned scarves and oversized sneakers are among the most well-known and sought-after Alexander McQueen designs.
