Hate florals? You’re not alone. But how do you escape them when they’re blooming everywhere this season? Leave it to Alexander McQueen, purveyor of wearable dark objects, to save your fashionable day.

Inspired by the coastal landscape of the Shetland Islands in Scotland, the latest McQueen collection is woven with floral and fauna – wild heather, clover, poppies and roses; sea birds and underwater creatures both real and mythical. Florals reimagined for those who wouldn’t be caught dead in anything summer-y.  The colors: a palette inspired by the colours of wild flowers and the Shetland coastline – Clover, Sea Pink, Heather and Lichen, Ivory, Madder Blue, Mariner, Peat Black and Shetland Red. The accessories: heavy metal with a feminine touch, perfect for those who appreciate nature, but love their pasty, sunscreen-coated porcelain skin even more.
