The street always factors into McQ collections, but for pre-fall its influence was noticeably toned down. While Sarah Burton, who, as creative director, also oversees Alexander McQueen’s contemporary line, still riffed on it, she also incorporated sculptural details and even some ladylike chic — though this being McQ, it all came with a sense of irreverence. A classic shift, adorned with marabou, featured a gauze overlay, which made the look at once elegant and youthful.

The same could be said of the fabric treatments, especially a veiny marble pattern used for a patent-leather jacket and skirt, and a moto jacket printed to resemble concrete — as if plucked from an urban street.
