The diffusion line to Alexander McQueen's mainline collection, McQ by Alexander McQueen was founded in 2005. Under Sarah Burton's creative direction, McQ has built a reputation for covetable separates with a street-style influence. Taking inspiration from London's music and art scene, the youthful label has a strong contemporary vibe. Accented with signature swallows and Japanese graphics, McQ's ready-to-wear line offers closet staples. Alongside its collection of tops, sweats, knitwear, skirts and pants, McQ has introduced footwear to the mix. With designs for both day and night, McQ's wedges are coveted by all. Contoured silhouettes with statement attitude feature among sandals, pumps and boots.
