Men’s Fashion, Spring 2007: Alexander McQueen


Fashion badboy Alexander McQueen showed a surpisingly tasteful and reserved collection for Spring this week in Milan. It’s called “Harlem,” which references the dandies of upper Manhattan while also referencing Death In Venice through the anagram “Mahler,” which is the name of the composer who penned the music used in Visconti’s 1971 film version of the Thomas Mann story.

We find that all a bit pretentious, but we think the collection is very cute and wearable, with masterfully tailored suits, fetching cardigans, and trench-style and double-breasted jackets that tuck into pants. Maybe gone are the days of Juicy Couture-esque track suits and clown pants, though we don’t want McQueen to trick us into thinking that good judgment has completely obliterated his urgent need to provoke.

See a few of our favorite looks from the collection after the jump.

      A most interesting collection, for sure… That pink pinstripe (mcqueen-s07-03) especially: it very out there, totally subversive and yet manages to not fall into the dark realms of bad taste!

      Visconti and Mahler, eh? Well, he did use Mahler’s music, but to suggest that Mahler wrote a score for a 1971 film, given that Mahler died in 1911, when Visconti was only five years old…

      The first pic looks like a pajamas and bathrobe ensemble.
