One of 2010’s greatest losses was Alexander McQueen who sadly passed away in February. However, in December 2010, McQueen’s work and extraordinary talent as a fashion designer was recognised at the British Fashion Awards, with the designer receiving the The Outstanding Achievement Award. In past years, this highly renowned award has been presented to the likes of John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood.
The British Fashion Council said that ‘This special award celebrates the achievement of a designer whose work has had an exceptional impact on global fashion’.
Alexander McQueen’s collections are highly prominent on the style scene and the range of Alexander McQueen sunglasses are a great representation of the designer’s love of a luxurious yet edgy approach towards fashion. The collection has a distinct sports luxe vibe with styles including the unisex AMQ4148 sunglasses, which are reminiscent of a sporty aviator but with the McQueen twist in the form of exquisite colour and texture detailing.
Alexander McQueen was famous for the use of skulls within his work and an array of his sunglass designs also incorporate this striking feature. The unisex AMQ4156 sunglasses for example, are a chic aviator style and the skull positioned beside by the hinge immediately makes the design more edgy and instantly recognisable as Alexander McQueen.
The Alexander McQueen sunglasses collection boasts intrinsic attention to fine detailing, exceptional craftsmanship and includes styles that look fantastic on both men and women, are universally flattering and will work with a number of looks regardless of how casual or dressed up you like to go. McQueen will always be remembered as one of the most influential, talented and respected designers of our time and the collection of Alexander McQueen sunglasses will remain highly sought-after and timelessly fashionable for many years to come.
