Alexander McQueen First Standalone Accessories Store Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

The fans of British fashion designer and couturier known as Alexander McQueen will now have to leave their wish list wide open as the brand partners with Club 21 to introduce its first ever standalone store in Suria Kuala Lumpur City Center, Malaysia. Located on its ground level and spanning over 870 square meters, the store will exclusively feature accessories from his Alexander McQueen label. A concept brought together by creative director Sarah Burton, the McQueen accessories range in Kuala Lumpur will see seasonal and staple favourites from the fashion house, covering both men and women, ranging from knuckle box clutches to footwear and from statement evening bags to silk skull scarves. Along with those high-end accessories, the standalone store is also filled with avant garde-like interiors as conceived by David Collins Studio. Its Suria Kuala Lumpur City Center lot has nice details from mushroom gills, seahorse tails, and even gargoyles although they claims to hold back with a minimalist aesthetic with an overall grey palette. For those of you who are willing to visit the all-new Alexander McQueen store in Suria Kuala Lumpur City Center, feel free to visit them during weekdays and weekend.

Born on 17 March 1969 in Lewisham, London, to Scottish taxi driver Ronald and social science teacher Joyce, McQueen was the youngest of six children. While he reportedly grew up in a council flat, the McQueens had lived in a terraced house in Stratford since McQueen was less than a year old. He attended Carpenters Road Primary School, started making dresses for his three sisters at a young age, and announced his intention to become a fashion designer. McQueen later attended Rokeby School and left aged 16 in 1985 with one O-level in art, going on to serve an apprenticeship with Savile Row tailors Anderson and Sheppard, before joining Gieves and Hawkes and later, the theatrical costumiers Angels and Bermans. While serving his apprenticeship, McQueen also attended the Rosetta Studio Workshops led by Yvonne Humble. The skills he learned as an apprentice on Savile Row helped earn him a reputation in the fashion world as an expert in creating an impeccably tailored look. Right before his death, Alexander McQueen had an eighty percent finished autumn and winter collection, sixteen pieces, presented during Paris Fashion Week on March 8th 2010, to a select handful of fashion editors at the 18th-century Hôtel de Clermont-Tonnerre.
