Alexander McQueen starts again from London for the new menswear project that will see a series of special events instead of the traditional parades.

The collection S-S 2020 designed by Sarah Burton takes its moves from a trip that the designer made in Tokyo in the years 90 with the founder Lee McQueen.

The pieces are built from tailoring Brit, according to the silhouette of Savile Row, where McQueen was trained as a tailor. The Frac Slim is embellished with white details on the hips, the Marsina is almost imperceptibly decorated with black lace or ruffles.

The tailoring is made couture, the masculine meets the feminine, combining embroidery of dragoons in pieces of haute couture for lovers of style. All in a brunch at the Charter House, a stone’s throw from St Paul and the Museum of London.

A former Cistercian monastery of the fourteenth century in PMR style, which Henry VIII will soppressed among the possessions of the crown. A location quintessentially London and quintessentially McQueen.
