It May Be Cool

By Jo Phillips

Ok, it may be a little cool outside now as winter is drawing in but it’s summer in many places in the world. That means we can start to enjoy spring clothes. Bring on the Alexander McQueen Spring/ Summer 2021 pre-collection, which is launching today. Pretty pinks meet dashing blacks from tailored suits to dip dye, all outfits you want to wear now. It may be cool but we can still be warm in our hearts.

The picture on left A trapeze-line dress with exploded sleeves and an asymmetric tiered hem with a trompe l’oeil print of 1950s photographic roses and Victorian lace in white cotton poplin. 

Trench coat with an exploded skirt volume in beige cotton twill with spliced tailored panelling in distressed jacquard Prince of Wales check. 

 This collection was designed during lockdown and therefore it is made predominantly out of stock fabric: over-printed, over-dyed – renewed.


Dress with a draped knotted asymmetric bodice in washed silk organza dip-dyed albion pink, fuchsia rose and dahlia over a skeletal corset in albion silk tulle and a stiffened tulle underskirt 

Dress with off-the-shoulder drape and a tiered skirt in washed silk organza dip-dyed Albion pink and black.
Dress with an deep open neckline and twisted draped skirt in washed silk taffeta dip-dyed Albion pink, fuchsia rose and lust red.
