SS10 McQ by McQueen
The McQueen diffusion line hasn’t been one that we have paid much attention too before, however this seasons collection struck a chord with us. That chord was bleached denim and chunky soled shoes. (unsurprising given 80% of our posts have been about shoes with brick-sized soles!)
The collection takes another look at 1980’s post punk fashion, mainly based on working class, skinhead styles. Key features therefore include; tapered denim, bleached denim jackets and jeans, bomber jackets and smart suiting. Overall the look is very sharp and slots into place with ongoing ‘underground’ trends for late eighties nostalgia.
This also seems like an apt time to revive that skin-ish style due to the anticipated release of the TV spin off of Shane Meadows’ “This is England” later this year.
