As Alexander McQueen’s right-hand confidant up until his 2010 passing, Sarah Burton’s intuitive understanding of the titular designer’s vision is imparted in the label’s latest menswear offerings. Evoking brazen histrionics and soft-spoken intimacy in the same breath, the McQueen label’s romanticized brutalism guides the geographically-specific set-pieces parenthesizing their impeccably crafted men’s collections. While the brand’s unmistakeable trademarks are laid bare across their menswear line, an intangible allure is sustained by Burton’s esoteric reference points. Building on a legacy that has long eluded generic classification, the McQueen culture thrives on the juxtaposition between contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity. By effortlessly honouring the legacy of its namesake, Sarah Burton weaves the Alexander McQueen label’s sombrely theatrical atmosphere into stately yet approachable menswear.
