Alexander McQueen re-opens its store in the Harbour City, following the design concept for the house, conceived by creative director Sarah Burton in collaboration with the architect Smiljan Radic.
Truly a distinctive world, the store is home to women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories and the interior is populated by McQueen clad mannequins interacting throughout the environment and referencing the narrative of the runway collections. The client is invited on a journey through this universe, fully immersed in it. The product is the protagonist, seen from all sides and up close.
Drawing on a fascination with nature that underpins the core values of the house of Alexander McQueen, the main material employed is wood: oak and walnut, light and dark. This appears on floors, ceiling, walls and display counters, intricately engineered to fit the space, with seams barely visible, knitted together, echoing the signatures central to the Alexander McQueen name. The organic nature of this material is echoed in sculpture carved in rock punctuating the space and in solid brass hanging rails. Traditional techniques upholding the Alexander McQueen values of uncompromising craftsmanship and the touch of the hand are combined with visionary design and innovation.

This elegant statement bag is constructed to fit all essentials, including a laptop, and has a front zip pocket to easily access phone or credit cards on the go.
The modern metallic handles, inspired by jewellery, allow the tote to be handheld comfortably due to their natural curve, or these can be folded down and the bag may be carried on the shoulder via leather straps.
The Tall Story is available in black oversized quilting achieved through heated moulding. It is also available in black stamped croc, or in a handmade patchwork style which references the ready-to-wear.
