Alexander McQueen's pre-SS21 line
Premium leather pieces are standard for Alexander McQueen year after year, and the label's pre-SS21 line is no exception.
Designed during lockdown, the collection is created out of predominantly repurposed stock fabric that's been renewed with fresh prints and dyes ― making leather a key material for its durability and versatility. On the collection, designer Sarah Burton says “I believe that it is our responsibility to protect the things we love from the past, to preserve our values, signatures, and history, but it is also our job to innovate." That innovation created a variety of upcycled pieces that feel brand new, like the new leather Worker Boot ― a designer take on a closet staple.
Serving sleek simplicity, the Worker Boot is covered in smooth black leather and completed with a classic lace-up style ― fit to accompany any daily outfit. The design is on the simpler side of the spectrum when it comes to the collection as a whole, and other standout leather pieces are spliced into unique silhouettes with bold accents.

Leather Biker Skirt
A sleek A-line fit that hits just below the knee looks like a work skirt at first glance, but dark black leather with contrasting stitch detailing and silver finished metal hardware create an edgy aesthetic.
Punk Stud Pump
If looks could kill these black shiny calfskin leather pumps would be lethal, thanks to all-over stud embellishments and a point-toe silhouette completed with a studded silver toe cap and heel.
A sweetheart neckline provides nice juxtaposition to the biker aesthetic of this dress, accented with an oversized belt buckle and silver statement hardware, plus precise ivory topstitch detailing.
Bi-Colored Leather Peplum Jacket
This totally unique pieces uses both sleek black and bold red leather, and offsets the classic biker jacket silhouette with a voluminous peplum waist and frock detail ― it also pairs perfectly with their red Leather Pencil Skirt.
Making the perfect statement bag, smooth black calf leather and black suede lining is embellished with silver finished details including a four ring adornment encrusted with Swarovski crystals.
