Since two thirty I have been sitting in Starbucks waiting for tonight. What is so special about tonight is what some of you might ask. If you did, the reason is because tonight is the launch party of the Alexander McQueen & tattoo artist Maxime Büchi collaboration! From five ’till eight, there will be drinks, live music & djing to celebrate the collaboration & the event is something McQueen fans should definitely have attended!
As you can see from laying your eyes on the shop, style & class ooze from the building!
Upon looking at the garments close up, you can see all over perfection! The fusion of styles is another great factor of the McQ clothing! I would recommend you all keep an eye out for the swallow print jumper this season! When speaking to one of the lovely assistants, they mentioned that this season’s floral print tees & jumpers are selling really quickly, so if you thinking about getting one, get in there quickly!
It’s probably the time that I show you the result of the collaboration!
These photos don’t really do the garments much justice however the products’ high quality & attention to detail radiates off of them! The bold red on the white catches eyes & then we see the amazing illustrations! The items are stylish & are so reasonably priced (for example the t-shirt costs only £80)!!
If you were wondering, what the idea behind the designs were, you’re in luck! I managed to speak to co-designer Maxime Büchi & when I asked what the concept & inspiration he said “we decided to base the range on the mixture of culture and art”.
There you have it! The McQ x MxM launch party. It was a truly brilliant night & I before I leave you, I would like to say a massive thank you to McQueen for hosting such a fab night!!
I shall leave you with the following links! Night!
