The new McQ Alexander McQueen resort 2014 collection is defined by rebellious vibes. If for the main Alexander McQueen resort 2014 line, creative director Sarah Burton took inspiration from the World War II period, this time, the source is relatively more recent: the 90s. The Nineties London punk culture inspired the designer to come up with edgy yet wearable ensembles that never fail to attract attention. Not just the decade of inspiration makes the difference between the two lines, but also the defining aesthetic. If the main line was all about femininity, the looks from the new McQ Alexander McQueen resort 2014 line seem borrowed from the boys.

The McQ Alexander McQueen pre-spring 2014 line brings a myriad of covetable pieces: modern blazers, printed pants, asymmetric skirts and dresses, edgy sweaters and many spectacular coats and jackets. The interesting thing about the new looks were the prints of choice. Rather than going for typical rock culture motifs like skulls, the label opted for arrow patterns instead. While the source of inspiration was clear, stylistic clichés were skillfully avoided. Given the label's reputation in the industry, we wouldn't have expected anything less.

The chromatic palette chosen for the McQ Alexander McQueen resort 2014 collection also offered a few exciting surprises. If white, black, navy and oxblood were somewhat expected given the theme, tones like orange, blue and silver proved a pleasant surprise. The smart combos and the well defined structures eliminated any doubt that nostalgic retro allures were the interest of the new line. On the contrary, everything about the new 2014 McQ Alexander McQueen cruise collection feels contemporary.

Though the McQ by Alexander McQueen resort 2014 line doesn't bring too many accessories, the options that can be spotted are definitely spectacular despite their relative simplicity. Fab high heel ankle boots, achromatic sandals and edgy belts are the main alternatives brought by the new line. The final defining touch that shows off the label's source of inspiration? The slicked back hairstyle which brings an edgy allure to the new season looks from the brand.
