After his untimely death on 11 February 2010, Alexander McQueen’s company owner Gucci confirmed the clothing brand would continue. On 27 May 2010, Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen's design assistant since 1996, was announced as Creative Director and Chief Designer at Alexander McQueen, with a plan to launch a men's underwear collection. Sarah Burton launched her first menswear collection during the Alexander McQueen ‘Pomp and Circumstance’ runway show held in June 2010 in Milan, Italy and in September 2010, Burton presented her first womenswear collection for the McQueen label in Paris.
For the forthcoming season, Autumn/Winter 2015, the Alexander McQueen menswear collection was showcased during London Men’s Fashion Week held in January 2015. The Winter wool men’s clothing has a wartime look. Military style coats and jackets in khaki, black, grey and midnight blue, some in pinstripe, are tailored to fit, a McQueen label signature. Completed with knitwear and quilting and designer leather details, trousers are three/quarter length, cropped – these trousers look odd.
The label presents an unusual view of male beauty. See a brief backstage film of the Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2015 menswear runway show here -Casting Director Jess Hallett. Long may Alexander McQueen’s outstanding legacy continue.
