Old meets new for McQ menswear AW16.
Never Forget Where You’re Coming From
Peering back at the brand’s ancestral history, McQ took on Fair Isle knits for AW16. None of this so-subtle-you-don’t-even-notice fuss either, full blown head to toe clashing colours were spattered all over the turtlenecks and trousers. Kilts got a look in too in the form of long, ballooning culottes.
Nan Goldin’s SS16 campaign for McQ portrayed clubbing creatures in their underworld, although AW16 has a more stay-at-home vibe, the kids are still itching to go out. Thigh high lace up boots, leather pants and matching gilets are perfect Soho Saturday night attire. You might be cosy at home in the week but McQ are ready to dress you for the weekend too. “The McQ man lives two lives” the collection notes stated, one is the grown up, the realist, the sensible one. The other life is his adolescent side that never grew up. Peter Pan in patent leather, what a sight to behold.
