McQ, the younger sibling of the Alexander McQueen men’s line, channeled the energy of the Arab Spring, underground raves and travelers in layered looks with a lived-in feel.

The traditional keffiyeh scarf was reworked into the brand’s signature razor blade motif, while tailored coats, shirts and T-shirts were plastered with images and prints by London tattoo artist Fergus Purcell, aka Fergadelic — among them, a graffiti pattern inspired by the wall scrawling seen at squat parties.

There were sophisticated touches too, such as oversized blousons in prewashed silk and knits with a foil finish inspired by survival blankets. They contrasted with baggy shorts and patchwork appliqué jeans for an artfully disheveled look.
