This is the backdrop upon which this season’s Missoni Man comes to life.

Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2016 - The elegance of men

For Autumn/Winter 2016, the collection embraces the spirit of travel and a world newly open to exploration and the gathering of collectibles, but in the way of the McQueen tradition of flora, fauna and memento mori. This is a collection obsessed with the elegance that ‘survives’ the struggle for life.
