London, United Kingdom (AHN) – Alexander McQueen’s last design project is set to be launched in June. The late fashion designer was working on a men’s underwear collection before he passed away in February, the brand reveals.
The new collection will include basic underwear – boxer shorts and briefs bearing his signature skull prints and all over feather prints – sleepwear, loungewear, and a seasonal fashion range for 2011 – swimwear, according to WWD.
McQueen CEP Jonathan Akeroyd said, The development of our men’s wear is a priority for us, and expanding the diversity of products within the sector is mandatory.
The range, which will be distributed by Albisetti SpA, will be available from AlexanderMcQueen.com and department stores worldwide, including U.K. stores such as Selfridges, Harrods, and Harvey Nichols. It will retail from 35 pounds [$52] for a basic boxer shorts to 370 pounds [$550] for a silk pajama set.
McQueen died February 11 of a suspected suicide.
