Alexander McQueen Mid Length Skirts
Sarah Burton took inspiration for Alexander McQueen's Pre-Fall '17 collection from footage of sculptor Barbara Hepworth at work in St Ives, Cornwall. Expertly made in Italy from structured yet soft leather, this A-line skirt sits high on the waist and falls just below the knee. Seamed panels at the hips contrast beautifully with soft folds at the back, reflecting the modernist lines of Hepworth's creations.
Inspired by the colorful ribbons tied to ancient Clootie trees in Cornwall, Alexander McQueen's skirt is tailored from tactile tweed woven with a host of vibrant fabrics including wool, cotton and chiffon. It gently flares from the waist to an A-line silhouette and is frayed along the edges. Try yours with a black blouse and tonal boots.
Alexander McQueen's pencil skirt is expertly tailored from structured grain de poudre wool - it will stay smooth and crease-free even after traveling. Fully lined in silk-satin, it's cut to sit at the smallest part of the waist and darted to streamline your hips. We think it works equally well with a fluid blouse or the matching blazer.

Whether bold and brash or subtly refined, there’s always an element of anarchy Sarah Burton imbues into her Alexander McQueen edit. Although frothy fantasy gowns with pilgrim tassels and outlandish embroidery hit the runway, the designer veers aesthetics with this silk blend midi skirt. Primly sculpted with accordion pleats, it’s encased by zigzagged metallic cross stitch acting as intricate armour of sorts.Alexander McQueen knitted midi skirtConcealed zip fastening at sideHigh rise, A line, elasticated waistband, accordion pleats, fine openwork knit, metallic braided trims100% silk; 100% woolDry cleanTrue to sizeSize small: Length 34"Model is 5ft10", chest 30", waist 24", inside leg 34.5" and wears a size smallMade in Italy
Alexander McQueen's Pre-Fall '17 collection is rooted in British history and folklore, with sculptor Barbara Hepworth and medieval armor featuring heavily on the design team's moodboard. This wool-blend skirt has a structured peplum waist accented with military-inspired buttons - look closely and you'll notice they're decorated with mythical creatures.

For Fall '17, Sarah Burton took the Alexander McQueen design team to Cornwall, England to see the landscapes that inspired Barbara Hepworth's sculptures. Referencing the artist's use of muted colors and curved lines, this fluted tweed skirt is woven with contrasting metallic yarns and blended with hints of wool, cotton and silk. The hem is expertly hand-frayed.

Alexander McQueen's midi skirt is cut from black bouclé-tweed flecked with metallic thread and touches of wool and cotton. The lightly frayed hem means it has a chic undone feel about it. The length works well with ankle boots.
