Alexander McQueen Militia

Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton planted a collar of inky scrolls across the lapels of a white cotton officer coat to open the Alexander McQueen show, announcing its seafaring theme and her single-minded focus on tailoring.  Burton called hers a romantic take on sailor style, with some tempest roiling underneath the calm surface, musing: What compels men to map their life with ink?  The tattoo prints – mostly mermaids, anchors and compasses – also could be seen on shirt cuffs and pointy collars, or splashed across duster coats and trenches.
