Alexander McQueen menswear returns to London with sallow gangsters

Snaffling Sarah Burton's masculine output from Milan is the most noteworthy coup in this London Collections: Gentlemen schedule. But as the audience gingerly settled by itself into the rickety chairs lining a Dickensian, East Stop warren of wood -panelled rooms, one problem begged itself - why did McQueen ever leave London at all?

Soon after all, the richesse is riddled with ideal backdrops for the artfully discordant model of manner that is McQueen's speciality.

Just take this selection, which featured a cast of hollow cheeked styles stalking people mournful rooms in oversized, elongated suits that produced them resemble a mob of sallow gangsters. For extra jitter, some wore cinematic serial killer semi- transparent confront masks. Regular Savile Row decorations such as chalk-stripe, Bengal, polka dot and Prince of Wales have been cut up and rearranged into a kaleidoscope of nerdy menswear references, below Pinkie- excellent peaked shoulders.

Monkstrapped bootlets, stained-glass jacquards, gold sleeper earrings, the odd kimono-ish shift and regimental-flashed trousers have been thrown in as well. Fun, sinister, and constantly impractical, it was conceptual trend rooted in traditional English menswear, and all jolly good entertaining to observe - though Burton's dad and mom did at times look a mite nonplussed.

As the British Fashion Council's new chair Natalie Massenet observed: "this feels like previous - school London Manner Week, a bit like early Galliano."

So when will Burton provide the womenswear residence far too ? McQueen is London- great.
