LONDON - Fashion designer Sarah Burton unveiled her second menswear collection for Alexander McQueen at Milan’s Menswear Fashion Week.
The designer, who was named as the label’s creative director last year following the tragic suicide of its founder Alexander McQueen, built on her debut range with oversized coats and capes which played on texture, with leather and fur enlivening the classic wool shapes.
Red, cream, mustard and black shades dominated proceedings, reports contactmusic.com.
Other fashion houses who showcased their collection, included Gucci, who stuck to what they know best - suave Italian dressing, in shades of grey, while Versace’s collection was dominated by black, leather belts and patterned knits.
While Gucci and Versace stuck to grey and black, D&G brightened up proceedings with colourful gilets and Mickey Mouse print emblazoned skinny jeans.
