An Ode to McQueen for Halloween
Alexander McQueen has long been synonymous with dark imagery, gothic inspiration and infamously associated with skull iconography. His designs imbue gothic motifs with decadence; elevating them in a way other designers haven’t successfully been able to. It is no coincidence that at this time of year, in particular, we’re highlighting the late designer’s legacy – what better holiday to enjoy McQueen’s darkness than Halloween? Steeped in history of its own, the holiday is founded on ancient traditions surrounding spirituality and souls. Whether you observe the holiday or not, before things get too festive, we’ll be wearing our skull accessories proudly.
We don't expect you to go in full fancy dress, we're suggesting a subtler approach: socks peeping out from below the cuffs of your trouser hems and t-shirts that are too good not to wear year-round.
A t-shirt is as timeless as it is inspired by the gothic holiday. There's a skull for every temperament from the graphic melting skull design to the scribbled castle skull t-shirt. You can wear them under a simple bomber jacket or pair with tailored trousers and a brogue for a more refined approach to your styling.
