Alexander McQueen, the renowned luxury fashion house, has unveiled its Men’s Pre-Spring/Summer 2024 collection, offering an immersive blend of classic tailoring, sports, and utility-inspired designs.
At the heart of this collection is a focused emphasis on cut and proportion, seamlessly weaving in details that infuse both traditional elegance and modern functionality. Standout pieces include jackets adorned with utility pockets and trousers boasting elasticated hems, introducing an air of “eased formality.”
Nature plays a significant role in this collection, with obscured floral prints and jewelled dragonfly motifs making recurrent appearances. These designs, both real and ethereal, represent a harmonious marriage of the natural world with McQueen’s iconic aesthetic.
Look 01 offers a double-breasted tailored jacket paired with cargo trousers in a sophisticated black wool gabardine, contrasted by a white cotton poplin shirt and a black leather tie.
Look 02 is a soft, understated ensemble featuring a single-breasted tailored jacket and cigarette trousers in pale peach wool grain de poudre.
Look 06 stands out with its dropped harness shoulders on a pristine white cotton poplin shirt, accompanied by wide-legged trousers with turn-ups in white cotton gabardine.
Look 14 showcases a captivating crewneck jumper in black three-dimensional mesh knit cotton embellished with a crystal seal appliqué, which is paired perfectly with cargo trousers in black cotton twill.
Look 24, a tribute to nature, sports a jumper in black merino wool with mesmerizing jewelled dragonfly embroidery.
Look 31 is a testament to luxury, with a double-breasted tailored jacket featuring crystal dragonfly embroidery, paired with two-pleat wide-legged trousers, offering a touch of elegance with its satin side stripe.
Accessories and Footwear
The collection doesn’t stop at clothing. It introduces a range of footwear options, from the edgy Slash and Metal heel boots in black leather to the casual Deck and Skate Deck lace-up trainers. Each shoe is meticulously designed, embodying the spirit of the collection.
Jewellery, too, speaks volumes. The range includes stunning seal rings, punk stud earrings in both silver and gold metal, and eye-catching dragonfly earcuffs, accentuated with crystals or black varnish and jet.
Lastly, the bag collection is both versatile and stylish. The Grip mini in pale grey leather, The Edge Duffle bag, and The Jewelled Satchel Pouch are just a few of the treasures awaiting fashion enthusiasts.
As always, Alexander McQueen has delivered a collection that strikes a perfect balance between time-honoured traditions and forward-thinking designs. The Men’s Pre-SS24 collection, available online and in stores, will undoubtedly be one to watch in the upcoming season.
