British art nouveau and arts and crafts, the restrained elegance of modernism: the sinuous iris, the proud thistle and The Glasgow Rose. The windswept earth and Northern landscapes laid bare. The core of the earth and the treasures hidden beneath its surface. Metal ores: rich seams of gold, silver and copper running throughout. Mineralogy: crystal, agate, flint, rock; opaque and sculptural on the outside, jewelled and reflective within. The juxtaposition between sobriety and seduction, the raw and the refined, the textured and the smooth, the light and the dark, all contrasts true to the handwriting of the house of Alexander McQueen.
Seasonal colour variations of The Story family, including the Story Shoulder, feature contrast knotted detailing and studs. Miniature bags in all shapes and sizes are suspended from signature leather harnesses: these include the Myth Cylinder, the Mini Vertical Clutch and the Mini Sphere Clutch. The Four-Ring Pouch has a soft leather body and is finished either with the seasonal closure, or the signature skull handle. The Metal Clutch may be carried in the hand or cross body, featuring a spiny ergonomic metal or classic jewelled closure. The Jewelled Satchel family also features new seasonal designs.
Glossed leather pointed toe knee-high and ankle boots with metal bar straps across the uppers and a signature metal pin embedded in a chunky heel, evoking a spine. Mary-jane pumps with a metal bar strap and signature pin heels. Sandals with sculptural resin heels referencing the beauty of mined stones.
Faceted pavé multi-hoop earrings, modernist sculptural high-shine metal finished with faceted stones, oversized polished dome chokers, giant agate pendants and bird whistle charms.
