McQ, a high-end contemporary brand from Alexander McQueen, distils the vision of Creative Director Sarah Burton into collections of youthful, modern pieces that draw on the rich design archive of Alexander McQueen. Sitting in parallel to the mainline, McQ offers women's wear, men's wear and accessories that remain loyal to the brand’s house codes yet are designed to be worn every day.
Founded by Lee Alexander McQueen in 2005, McQ has always found inspiration in street culture, offering individual pieces that fit perfectly into the modern wardrobe. The signatures of the house, including structured tailoring, the nipped-in waist and tartan, are distilled into wearable pieces that are individual and evoke a quiet confidence.
McQ collections often reference uniform and the military, drawing inspiration from Britain’s rich heritage. Traditional British techniques and fabrics are used in contemporary ways, creating pieces that are both functional and beautiful.
