The posthumously designed 2013 spring/summer show from design house Alexander McQueen recently debuted in Paris at Men’s Fashion Week. Sarah Burton headed the collection this season acting as the label’s creative director. As a representation of classic business casual menswear updated with contemporary fits, tropical colors stand out from accompanying neutral tones on a selection of silk-constructed suited items. Delivered complete with pocket squares and decorative flowers, peach, navy and cream shades have been chosen for this release. Conventional checkered and houndstooth patterns are displayed alongside unique vivacious prints, with further leather options providing a single interruption of the silk motif. With suit jackets as the focus, Burton presents a number of single- and double-breasted styles; the most memorable looks included black with contrasting white labels, gold dragonfly detailing, and an all-over print mixed checkered pattern matched with a black overcoat.
