What with that wedding dress and the stars climbing over themselves to wear McQueen at the Met Ball last week, the British label is the one everyone wants to be seen in right now – and Sarah Burton’s doing everything in her power to keep it that way.
Which brings me on to today’s love or hate item. This pink Alexander McQueen vintage leather jacket is effortlessly cool and will take you from season to season.
Firstly, it’s in the hottest colour around right now – pink. Secondly, I love the juxtaposition of having a tough biker jacket made from the prettiest pink leather – a classic McQueen move. The gold side zips and buttons are great little details and the design means it will only look better with age.
This jacket looks best with basics – think black skinny jeans or a grey jersey dress – but it’ll work just as well at night, too. It’s a real investment, but there’s no better time to buy your own piece of McQueen than right now.
