Alexander McQueen took to the sea for pre-fall, but not in any conventional, blue-and-white striped way. Rather, the designer took his cue from the Irish whaling community and the mourning widows of whalers in the Celtic North. He showed handkerchief-hemmed black dresses with lace insets or longer versions featuring prints that were inspired by the glow of light through a Gallélamp. On the daywear front, there is an abundance of nubby tweed skirts with either frayed edges or fur collars and a cable-knit print on a trenchcoat or wool toppers.
