Alexander McQueen’s new lookbook has serious Royal Family vibes

Ever look at the Royal Family during weddings and celebrations and think, “Yeah, I could pull that off,” only to realise you’re a lowly peasant who has no regal suits or military medals? Then your day is about to get a whole lot better, because Alexander McQueen’s new AW17 lookbook will let you look like royalty with the incestuous bloodline (although it will still cost you an arm and a leg and an overdraft).

The brand’s new range of vibrant eveningwear cut in luxurious British fabric draws inspiration from the classic London gent and iconic poet/novelist and decadent sex fiend Oscar Wilde, whose influence can most notably be seen in the embroidered cape, double breasted fur collar coat, bright peak lapel velvet coats and a paisley silk robe.

So start remembering those Oscar Wilde quotes you used to post on Facebook in uni to make yourself seem intellectual. You’re going to need them.
