The windswept landscapes of the North—think: Art Nouveau, Modernism, Henry Moore—inspired Alexander McQueen’s Fall/Winter 2020-21 collection. Wool, sharkskin mohair, Donegal tweeds, cotton poplin, suede, Irish linen, and leather were employed for sharply tailored looks, cut close to the figure.
Waists were highlighted with belts and cross-body straps. Sweaters were full of texture and oversized, while pants were kept darted, slim, and cropped. A palette of red, black, silver, and white gave way to abstract patterns and painted prints paired with steel-toe boots and slicked back hair.
