Of course, when choosing from McQ’s latest casual wear capsule collection Swallow, your girl picks a sweatshirt. Because pretty much nothing that I can’t study in and sleep in (yes, consecutively thank you very much) makes the cut during finals week. The swallow is a recurring theme for McQueen as a brand, initially inspired by Hitchcock’s thriller for the prints in the iconic S/S ’95 show; McQueen was fond of themes that captured human vulnerability in the face of threats from mother nature. And in the below photos you will likewise see me in denial (Note: shot last week, pre-finals grind) of impending doom, hence the dancing and smiles and the like. But I digress. It was lovely to be able to work with McQ on the launch (I went to the Savage Beauty exhibition in New York over summer and have been a fan of McQueen since), especially since they paid homage to such a prominent motif for the brand, hope you likey.
