Sarah Burton presents the Alexander McQueen menswear fall winter 2023 collection lookbook.
A return to formality. An exploration of beauty and power through men’s tailoring and a focus on cut, proportion, and silhouette. The classic subverted. Volume is alternatively neat – strict – and exploded. Jackets are spliced and slashed, stripped back, and focussed on the body within. Waists are high, elongating the leg: the bumster in reverse.
Kilts and the coverall are reimagined: both references to early McQueen. The most prominent motif in the collection is the orchid, a cultivated flower. Like the tailoring, it is dissected: printed, woven, and embroidered. The McQueen seal appears alongside.
Launches in-store August 2023.
