The three-storey boutique was designed by the brand’s creative director Sarah Burton and architect Smiljan Radic, whom took inspiration from the brand’s fascination with nature with varying shades of walnut and oak woods throughout. Glass cylinders reflect light across the floors providing a unique concept store as you shop the womens and mens collections.
Following McQueen’s incredible success into the art exhibition world - the V&A’s Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty (which was the museum’s most-visited show to date), the top floor of the Bond Street store is now an exhibition space. Open to the public and students, the new space has been created in a bid to inspire future fashion designers and artists, as well as the chance to attend talks with the brains behind the brand, including Burton.
