First Light: Alexander McQueen's English poem

The short film by director Jonathan Glazer with the Spring Summer 2021 women's collection and Sarah Burton's Pre Fall Winter 2021 men's collection
Reading time 2 minutes

"Shape, silhouette and volume. The beauty of the skeleton of the clothes is brought back to its essence, a world full of emotions and human connections." this is how the creative director Sarah Burton describes the collection . Few words for good connoisseurs. The new collection, the new Sprign Summer 2020 collection by Alexander Mcqueen and the Pre Fall Winter 2021 for men comes to life in a short movie directed by British director Jonathan Glazer. Titled "First Light" , the new short film includes the two collections of the English brand and is set in the London scenario, along the banks of the Thames. Between bridges and glimpses that in this moment of lockdown turn out to be almost apocalyptic. The models emerge from the water with their voluminous and transparent dresses, dresses that are expertly studied with a refined couture approach. For women, however, the new McQueen wardrobe is not limited to sophisticated hyper-feminine dresses but also suits that recall masculine tailoring, structured silhouettes composed of denim and leather, and flared trench coats that highlight the waistline. In the video the boys have fun in youthful stunts, you can feel the youthful thrill and tireless energy. The men's collection is the continuation of Spring Summer 2021 , tailored suits but also items with a British daywear allure such as biker-style leather jackets and structured wool trench coats. A message of hope, a hymn to the return to life, to physical connections between people and human contacts between friends.
