Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2017 Milan

Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2017 Preview

The wit, wisdom and beauty of Oscar Wilde as he journeys from Tite Street in London to Paris Saint Germain inform Alexander McQueen’s menswear collection for Autumn/Winter 2017.

The writer wears tailoring typical of the London gent, cut in classic British fabrics to begin with – jackets and coats in wool serge with velvet appliqués, a 3-piece flannel suit in charcoal and exaggerated overcoats in or trimmed with shearling. His style becomes more fanciful, as he travels from the British capital to France.

An all-over paisley print silk robe, an overcoat made in a jacquard inspired by antique rugs and gemstone rings all pay homage to the magnificent dandy. Two huge gold peacocks on a dark green background painted above Wilde’s bed in the room at L’Hotel on the Left Bank was where he spent his last days. They remain there to this day and are the central motif in this collection.
