Introducing… Alexander McQueen’s Heroine Chain Satchel

Introducing… Alexander McQueen’s Heroine Chain Satchel

The age of the IT-bag may be over, but every so often a new design comes along which makes me go a little crazy… today, Alexander McQueen’s Heroine Chain Satchel is doing just that. Coming off the success of last season’s larger Heroine bag, the Satchel is a smaller, more elegant version with a shoulder strap. As I’m currently obsessed with all things nude, so the above one is my favourite – although the other colours aren’t too shabby either. […]

McQ Spring Summer 2013 Ad Campaign

McQ Spring Summer 2013 Ad Campaign

What do you think of McQ’s new SS13 ad campaign? Shot by David Sims and featuring Manon Leloup and Matt Bell (I’m not going to pretend that I know who they are – I don’t…), it’s definitely a very dark and moody campaign. Although I love the images, they definitely feel more like an A/W campaign and I wish it would be a bit more indicative of the actual collection… SS13 is a lot lighter and has lots of colour and […]

Celebrate Halloween with McQ!

Celebrate Halloween with McQ!

No plans yet for Halloween tomorrow? Here’s a slightly different idea… why not celebrate it in style with Alexander McQueen’s diffusion line McQ at the label’s brand new London flagship store on Dover Street? There will be free House punch, plenty of scary purchases (just check out their Halloween edit) and to top it off, 20% off on the night. And if you can’t make it, you can still get your discount online. To register for the event and/or get […]

McQ AW12 Campaign Revealed

McQ AW12 Campaign Revealed

Fact: McQ is Alexander McQueen’s little brother no more. The diffusion line is finally getting the attention and credit it deserves and is coming out as a serious player. First, Sarah Burton took over as Creative Director for McQ, which seemed previously a little bit neglected. This was followed by the first ever McQ fashion show in February (which I got to attend, review here), then there’s the imminent opening of the very first standalone McQ boutique on Dover Street, […]

Wednesday Wishlist: The Jubilee Edition

Wednesday Wishlist: The Jubilee Edition

Personally, I’m not really fussed about the Jubilee (there, I’ve said it). It’s undeniably a huge accomplishment for any person and definitely worth celebrating, but I’m really more excited about the extra day off (I’m off on holiday next week instead). Having said that – I’ve actually been enjoying all the Jubilee-related items in every shop, on the streets, and mostly in my inbox. For months now I’ve been gathering all Jubilee emails and I could have done this post […]

London Fashion Week AW12: The magical world of McQ!

For the first time ever, McQ had its very own catwalk show, and I was lucky enough to score one of the golden tickets. Alexander McQueen’s diffusion has been slowly but steadily making its mark over the past couple of seasons, and now Sarah Burton has taken over as Creative Director and with a first McQ shop opening on Dover Street in March, the sister line is set to finally step into the limelight as a true label in its […]

A Very McQueen Birthday

A Very McQueen Birthday

I’m back from a blissful, relaxing, much-needed holiday which also included my birthday. It started in the French Riviera, where I saw my cousin get married, then on to the south of Portugal, where I celebrated my birthday (and first anniversary) with my lovely boyfriend, who spoiled me rotten for the occasion. I got not just one, but three Alexander McQueen goodies, all things he picked out himself, after remembering how much I liked the designer after forcing him to […]

McQueen and I

McQueen and I

Last night I finally saw the documentary “McQueen and I“. I’d missed it on tv last week and wasn’t really sure if I wanted to see the Channel 4 version of the story of Alexander McQueen, one of my all time favourite designers. I didn’t know how Channel 4 could make a programme which was aimed at the general public, which could still truly pay respects to the late designer without focusing on the bad and the drama, and forgetting […]
