Alexander McQueen’s contemporary brand McQ is an edgy, extravagant and effortless collection of eyewear. McQ is brand shining new to B Sunglasses just in time for Christmas.
Alexander McQueen has revolutionised the fashion industry over time. Lee Alexander McQueen was born in London, and his mastery of tailoring and costume skills were developed in his youth on placements and in education. McQueen’s early runway shows captured great attention, featuring controversial, shock tactics and giving him a reputation as a ‘hooligan’ in the British fashion industry. During his career, McQueen was a hit with the stars, designing the wardrobe for legends like David Bowie and Icelandic singer Bjork.
Tragically, in 2010, Lee Alexander McQueen took his own life leaving his close friend and business associate Sarah Burton heading the brand. Burton is renowned for her contemporary vision; in April 2011 she received global recognition as the designer of the wedding dress for Kate Middleton. The same year Burton won the Designer of the Year award at the British Fashion Awards and soon after she was awarded an OBE for her services to the fashion industry. Burton’s talents are unsurpassed. Burton’s creativity, and the legacy of McQueen’s style characterises each new collection, including McQ which began creating sunglasses in 2006. The brand is characterised by McQueen’s British edginess, with vivid designs and shaping.
The square pilot sunglasses feature in a bold black and are effortlessly modern and urban.
The McQ sunglasses are wonderfully crafted and play on the beauty in elements of traditional sunglasses. Design is refreshing, with unusual material combinations like durable acetate and metals with striking mixed-material embellishments. McQ is truly for the next generation, with eccentricity and modernity at its core. Extravagance and cool urban style shapes the colours and the frame styles of each piece.
Quirky oversized frames are finished with a striking double bridge detail and come in two fresh and playful colours.
The perfect Christmas gift for the one you love: the teardrop pilot sunglassws are beautiful in shape and colour. A unique teardrop frame shape with Havana arms is set against stunning red mirror lenses.
