McQ, a contemporary brand from Alexander McQueen, was founded in 2005. The brand distills the vision of Creative Director Sarah Burton into collections that embody an urban, young London. Rooted in the renegade spirit of Lee Alexander McQueen, who founded the brand, McQ offers menswear, womenswear, and accessories with casual, everyday ease and a rebellious attitude. McQ has always drawn inspiration from street culture, reinterpreting the uniform of London’s subcultures for a modern wardrobe. Drawing on the rich design archive of Alexander McQueen, McQ offers a relaxed, raw interpretation of the house codes.
