Alexander McQueen Releases Short Fashion Film for SS18 Collection
Now available for pre-order and in stores, Alexander McQueen released a candid video for its SS18 menswear collection. The presentation, which is inspired by classic European prints and textiles mixed with a punk edge — think red shearling and leather vests, mixed-pattern grey suits, and sleeveless lace tops and trench coats — was first shown back in June as part of Paris Men’s Fashion Week. Directed by Masha Vasyukova, the short film features the actors — Willow Barrett, Benjamin Lessore and Chris Diena — strolling through the cloudy streets of London as a makeshift runway, with a classic model-esque aloofness that draws all the more attention to the sharp tailored cuts of the line. Take a look at the video here and consider one of the collection’s many coat options — a standout being the dramatic shearling and leather long biker jacket — before what’s sure to be a harsh winter.
