McQ Alexander McQueen
June 05, 2014 New York
That subversive attitude permeated this lineup, from the shirred chiffon crepe on the front of a boyish bomber jacket to the white shirt printed with an image from Alexander McQueen's 1996 Dante collection. Zippers on a black knit dress opened wide to expose lots of skin on the sides of the torso. On another dress—done in the aforementioned festival floral—they unzipped completely into a top and skirt that could be worn as separates.
There was a street element, too. Long skater shorts were paired with a giant olive anorak made out of a super-lightweight parachute silk, and an oversize pale blue shearling motorcycle jacket was worn over a sheer black dress. Indeed, the collection nicely ping-ponged between feminine and masculine silhouettes. Which, if you are going to a festival, happens to be a fitting look.
