First Light collection for men and women
Alexander McQueen presents the spring/summer collection 2021 ,,First Light” in cooperation with British director Jonathan Glazar. The fashion show was shot on the banks of the Thames in London, where models strut through the river’s branches. The women’s collection includes pieces such as dresses with corsets and tulle skirts. Here, the elegance of the dresses merges with the gritty side of the river, as seen in the cover image below. The menswear is reminiscent of 60’s biker fashion and includes garments such as pants, jackets and a vest made of white cotton jersey. Even though the show is very gritty and rustic, the collection is still very elegant and haute couture.
