Alexander McQueen's McQ line To Open First Flagshop Store This Summer On Dover Street

The surprise show to captivate the fashion crowd at LFW in February was undoubtedly McQ. At the very first McQ catwalk show at LFW, every fashion editor came out of the hugely dramatic, ultra mystical A/W ready-to-wear spectacle completely transfixed, and overwhelmed by the impressive vision and quality of the collection. The second Alexander McQueen line under the creative directorship of Sarah Burton will be sold at its new home in 14 Dover Street, London from summer-time (rumour has it we can expect the store to open in August, but no date is confirmed just yet).

The brand’s first ever flagship store will sell the womenswear catwalk collection, as well as accessories, menswear and the commercial collection. What a treat we’ve got ahead of us! The massive four floored Georgian townhouse will have 273 square metres of pure shopping heaven, housing McQ’s distilled collection of Alexander McQueen’s signature silhouettes and archive inspired pieces.

We’ve had a sneak peek of the collection and are extremely relieved to discover that although the McQ collection has had a huge game change and is now a catwalk collection, the entry price is still a really affordable £150.

    How a mom stole a car in under 60 seconds

    “I didn't steal your car but I think my mom may have. It's a long story. I'll explain, but your car is safe and sound," read the flier posted in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.

    Custom faux-tique electric tram aims to replace New York's horses over the neigh-sayers

    For the record, it's the year 2014. I mention that in case someone reading this story about a push to replace horses with motorized carriages thinks they've stumbled onto some archival piece by accident. It's been more than 100 years since the first vehicles began to trundle around Manhattan, but the last remaining vestiges of horse-powered transport in the city could be nigh — if the backers of a massive electric wagon get their way.

    Heart-wrenching messages of fear, love and despair, sent by high school students from a sinking South Korean ferry, added extra emotional weight Thursday to a tragedy that has stunned the nation. Nearly 300 people -- most of them students on a high school trip to a holiday island -- are still missing after the ferry capsized and sank on Wednesday morning. Mom, I love you," student Shin Young-Jin said in a text to his mother that was widely circulated in the South Korean media.
