Alexander McQueen presents its Autumn/Winter 2021 women’s collection.


Designed by Sarah Burton it was inspired by a new sense of life with a bold extravagant silhouette representing the anticipation of the future.


Titled “Anemones,” the collection focuses around the Anemone flower which features as a key motif throughout the pieces.



“It feels like now is a time for healing, for breathing new life, for exploring echoes from the past to enrich our future. More than ever, a sense of humanity, of the team working together with a single aim – to make something beautiful, something meaningful – feels both precious and important.” Said Creative Director Sarah Burton.


She continued; “we looked at water, for its healing properties, and at anemones. Anemones are the most ephemeral flowers, here made permanent in cloth. The women wearing the anemone dresses almost become like flowers, like their embodiment, their character – but amplified, grounded, radiant and strong.”



The collection features a catalogue of dresses fitted at the waist and but exploding out through an exaggerate silhouette of skirts and sleeves.


The classic McQueen leather biker jacket is worn with feminine dresses to add a raw edge to looks. A colour palette of neutral tones with a splash of red and blue denim accents.



Shoes come in the form of Wander Chelsea boots in black leather, Tread Heel Chelsea boots in black leather and Deck sneakers.


The Curve bag returns  in rose gold leather, ice pink and black leather and in lake blue washed denim and black leather. Other bags in the collection include the Bundle Bag, Mini Bundle and Sculptural Mini Jewelled Satchel.
