Alexander McQueen Opens New York Flagship
A 3,500-square-foot Alexander McQueen flagship has opened at 747 Madison Avenue. The store design is the result of a unique collaboration between David Collins Studio and creative director Sarah Burton. Panels covering the walls are adorned with flora and fauna motifs. The 3-D art also features branches, skulls, gargoyles, sea creatures, shells, and the Armadillo shoe from the spring 2010 collection. The main colors used in the space are white, lavender, gold, soft gray and nude. “We wanted to capture the delicateness of Sarah’s creations,” said Simon Rawlings, creative director of David Collins Studio.
