Watching the livestream of the McQ show was the highlight of the fall shows so far (if missed the broadcast, never fear - I will share video of the show as soon as it's available). This season was the first time the house of McQueen showed the contemporary little sister line on the runway, and what creative director Sarah Burton sent down the leaf covered catwalk did not disappoint. The models, looking like an army of hyper fashionable aliens stomping through a deliciously creepy forest, were dressed in house signatures like sharply tailored military coats, sheer embroidered bodysuits layered under tartan plaid or velvet dresses with tone-on-tone embroidery, and lots and lots of tulle. The collection perfectly translated the dark romanticism and Savile Row tailoring the house is renowned for without dumbing it down for the contemporary customer. The clothes are at once fantastical and accessible, luxurious but attainable. The show was so good it made me shiver. See the complete collection here.
