In early anticipation of its 2013 foray, McQ by Alexander McQueen unveils the comprehensive imagery to its Spring/Summer 2013 lookbook. The collection from the late namesake designer arrives nothing short of legacy-honoring as each outfit balances the fine line between strictly high-end, contemporary menswear, with elements of offbeat and unconventional details, prints and cutting. While the latter segment of the lookbook takes on a decidedly monochromatic overtone via black and white tailored blazers, slender shirting options and cropped trousers, the collection also infuses customized camouflage embellishments and all-over print, military-inspired patterns for a decidedly more casual segment. In a way that few design houses are able to execute, the collection affords various influences that tap into the psyche of its diverse identity in both color iterations, pattern choices as well as silhouette presentations. Double-rider-influenced jackets reside beside muted, unassuming casual blazers. Collarless leather outerwear brings tops off gradient print button-ups and swooping crop bottoms. From a night out and drinks with friends, to a full-scale Fashion Week-ready outfit, the upcoming McQ by Alexander McQueen range looks to provide a bit for everyone.
