Alexander McQueen was a ground-breaking fashion designer renowned for theatrical creations which explored fantasy and rebellion.
Since McQueen’s death in 2010, the brand is led by Sarah Burton, who has earned her own international success, while still honouring Lee's vision.
McQueen's rug collection is couture level, with arresting design, superior quality and skilled craftsmanship. The collection won Fashion's Contribution to Design award at the 2010 Elle Decoration British Design Awards.
"The rugs are interior works of art, instant heirlooms." Sarah Taylor, W Magazine
Military Brocade Ivory is a dramatic design originally conceived for an embroidered coat. The curled oriental serpent appears from a skull in the centre of a classical wreath of ferns, hand knotted in gold silk and set against a cream cashmere background.
Monarch Fire is inspired by an exquisite hand crafted butterfly from Sarah Burton's inaugural Folklore collection. In dramatic, peppery hues, it is hand woven in silk to capture the shimmering, hypnotic movement of this delicate motif.
