Alexander McQueen has presented its Fall/Winter 2020 collection as previously seen on its Milan Fashion Week runway in an Ethan James Green-shot lookbook.

The Sarah Burton-designed menswear looks draw influence from the harsh environments of Northern British landscapes, as well as “the restained elegance of modernism” in regards to the Art Nouveau movement, Henry Moore’s drawings, and the label’s history, looking at heritage tailoring, uniforms, hybrids and garment beetling.

As a result, the FW20 collection brings a variety of slick double-breasted suits — such as an all-white offering complete with thistle embroidery –as well as a standout long-line coat made from “Mineral Yellow” suede. Other notable pieces include the garment beetled leather coat, which was pounded against wooden beams for over four hours by William Clark (the last remaining practitioner of this century-old technique in Ireland), the wool-silk suits and coats that are printed with an engineered artwork of Henry Moore’s Three-Quarter Figure 1928, and lastly, the bejeweled vests that include molten metal ores and engineered art nouveau iris silver bullion embroidery all over.

Casualwear pieces come in the form of wool and mohair-knitted jumpers that sport house graphics including skulls and an exploded Argyle-flag motif, as well as heavy-duty-esque artist overalls that are printed with oversized, hand-drawn skulls and embroidered with silver and gold bullion thread.

Take a look at the Alexander McQueen FW20 collection in the lookbook above, and keep an eye out for its release in the coming months online and in stores.
