Just like little sis Pippa, it’s McQ’s turn to shine. The main line had an unprecedented year, with Savage Beauty and the Royal Wedding (why exactly do we have to cap that?), not to mention standout collections. Now, after remaining relatively quiet, the second line is bursting onto the scene, announcing plans to stage its first runway show during London Fashion Week in February (the main line will continue to show in Paris), as well as open a London store in the spring. Not just any store, but a four-story flagship in a Georgian townhouse at 14 Dover Street, befitting the giant Q in the logo.
By the way, for anyone in London, check out the Alexander McQueen sample sale, November 30 – December 3, The Old Sessions House, Westminster Room, 22 Clerkenwell Green.
