Alexander McQueen Glasses
Lee Alexander McQueen earned a reputation as one of the world’s most respected fashion designers in less than ten years. Beginning his fashion career in theatrical costume design with Angels and Bermans, he mastered his signature tailoring techniques, learning exquisite ornamentation. In 1996, McQueen was appointed the Chief Designer at the French Haute Couture House Givenchy, where he worked until 2001. The telltale nature of Alexander McQueen runway shows are in the inherently raw emotional power and energy, paired flawlessly with a contemporary but distinctively gothic romance in his collections. McQueen’s focus on juxtaposing contrasting elements is integral to his entire line of products, which includes both eyeglasses and sunglasses; tradition and modernity, fluidity and strength, soft lines and his trademark skull detail. McQueen’s list of accolades in the fashion industry is numerous and impressive, spanning over a decade before his long-time Head of Design, Sarah Burton took over. Since her appointment as Creative Director of the Alexander McQueen brand, Burton has produced acclaimed collections with a focus on handcraft, establishing herself as an accomplished designer with artisan and technical excellence. The Alexander McQueen eyewear collection reflects the polished, highly–regarded workmanship and impeccable tailoring that McQueen has been identified with throughout the years.
