Shop the interactive Alexander McQueen Spring 2022 RTW collection, inspired storm chasing. Models, chosen for their individuality, move against the very backdrop that inspired the clothes they are wearing. They are unique but unified by the magnificence of the sky above them.
Sarah Burton says, “I love the idea of embracing the mystery and unpredictability of the sky, the fact it is always moving, always changing. I look out over London from our studio where the views are incredible and represent our home throughout history: from St Paul’s Cathedral to the London Eye. The sky against which those familiar monuments appear may be calm and restorative at times and menacing at others. For me, the tension between the two is extremely inspiring. It also evokes the paradoxes that have always been at the heart of Alexander McQueen.”
The marquee prints in this collection, she explained, are based on photographs the Alexander McQueen team took from the rooftop of the brand’s studio, where the London cityscape — “from Saint Paul’s Cathedral to the London Eye” — is on full display.
