McQ Alexander McQueen Fall 2014–Serving up a Japanese inspired outing, Sarah Burton continues to bring a contemporary coolness to the MCQ Alexander McQueen girl with the label’s fall-winter 2014 collection. Autumn features a comic strip print created by manga artist Yoshiyasu Tamura which is splashed across a selection of looks including sweaters, denim pants and moto jackets for a graphic effect. Infused with a street wear style, the McQ girl has a tough attitude wearing printed scarves, knee-high boots and satin bombers.
McQ Pre-Fall 2014 – Known for embracing a street-wear inspired aesthetic, the pre-fall 2014 collection from McQ by Alexander McQueen takes on leopard prints and punky plaid for the transitional season. Designer Sarah Burton focused on boxy jackets and graphic tees paired with loose-fitting and distressed denim. The McQ woman also embraced her feminine side with fit and flared skirts featuring ruffled finishes. The result was a cool, if a not almost grungy outing for the pre-fall season.
McQ Alexander McQueen Resort – Creative director Sarah Burton found inspiration in London style circa the 1990s for McQ Alexander McQueen’s resort 2014 collection.

The McQ woman layers up this resort season with sweaters, jackets and fringe with a menswear influence.
