Attention fashion slaves and stone-broke style junkies.
Lend your ears to the tidings of a new noble obsession: McQ, a collection created by the royal highness himself, Alexander McQueen.
Galliano’s successor and Gucci’s heir apparent, the untamable bad boy of Britain has translated his provocative, theatrical, and insanely costly couture into a denim-based, ready-to-wear collection of young, bold pieces that straddles the line between sweet and street.
Plaid car coats, denim dresses, studded bomber jackets, angora shrugs: It’s as if the man were encouraging a battle between Anglomaniacs and rockabillies, greasers and good girls.
For men and women, it’s slouchy, sexy, and serious. The look’s so bad it’s good (and vice versa). And prices start at $200. (Not cheap, but better than his five-digit dresses.)
Now that’s a crowning achievement.
Especially for a Queen.
