"For SS09, McQ Alexander Mcqueen invokes the youthful exuberance of 1980's London nightlife, channelling the decadence and extravagance that characterised the figureheads of the era's subversive club scene. A plethora of clashing prints, bold colours and intriguing cuts reflects McQ's fresh take on the decade's style, instigating a modern twist on silhouttes that defined a generation.

Rebellious androgyny and challenging style worked in underground clubs like 'Blitz', 'Gossips' and 'Taboo' created a legion of revolutionary dressers including Boy George, Steve Strange and Leigh Bowery, mirroring the recent vogue for fashion icons in London's anti-establishments clubs.

Perfectly complementing McQ's counter-culture spirit, the vibrant, positive energy of the scene is flawlessly captured in the collection. Bold Zebra stripes and geometric prints are toughened up with shoulder zips and chunky belts, whilst metallic feather necklaces and supple leather biker jackets imbue the range with the traditional rebellious vibe which characterises McQ. Alexander McQueen's exquisite tailoring redefines the upfront nature of 1980's clubs, creating a refreshing, modern uniform for today's nocturnal youth."
