Under the watchful eye of creative director Sarah Burton, McQ by Alexander McQueen embraces goth-inspired elements, patchwork, vivid prints and contrasting silhouettes, which was more than evident in its recent spring/summer presentation. A quick glance at the fashion house’s fall collection reveals much of the same, however, provides subtle updates to reflect the range’s overall design inspiration — carnival culture.

Statement outerwear, namely, renditions on the bomber, coach jacket, blazers, denim jackets and overcoats team up with oversized wool pullovers, button-down shirts and an assemblage of graphic tops. A mixture of oversized trousers, relaxed denim jeans and studded creeper-style shoes finish the majority of the looks — devising a lineup, which leans heavily on youth-dominated subcultures, including goth cues, skate culture themes and subtle military accents. You can pick up some pieces over at HBX.
