Magic and MysticismAlexander McQueen FW17

Alexander Mcqueen FW17 collection is inspired by pagan landscapes, creative communities and ancient traditions of Comwall, especially the “Cloutie” Trees. In Celtic areas pilgrims tie strips of cloth to the branches of the trees as a symbol of hope and dreams. Medieval armour deconstructed and reconstructed, flora and fauna embroideries and silk dresses dominate a fluid silhouette. The collection combines a variety of material, shapes and patterns evoking the treasure of a pagan Wishing Tree.
