Alexander McQueen announces Milan menswear comeback
Alexander McQueen has announced it will return to Milan next January.
The British label’s last catwalk show in the Italian city dates back to January 2012. Alexander McQueen chose Milan to develop the line after it was first introduced in 2004 - and before joining the London Fashion Week Men’s calendar in January 2013.
“We no longer wish to show with the menswear line. We have now decided to introduce our collections by staging a presentation in a different city each season,” a spokesperson for the label told FashionNetwork.com, confirming the news reported by MF Fashion on Tuesday.
Like the event in London last June, the Milan presentation will be accessible by invitation only, and will be open to a limited number of journalists. It is scheduled on Sunday January 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m, at a venue that is yet to be confirmed.
The latest Alexander McQueen menswear show was held in January 2018 in Paris, where the label, which is owned by the Kering group, chose to show after 2017, when it dropped out of the London calendar. Alexander McQueen’s men's collections are designed by creative director Sarah Burton with stylist Harley Hughes.
This is very good news for the Milan Fashion Week, as another prestigious name is set to join its January calendar, alongside other major labels making their Milanese come-back during the men’s week, like Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo and N°21 among others.
