The re-launch of McQ Swallow collection came as a surprise. The collection left it’s decorative past behind and moved into a more provocative, bold form with the swallow logo spelled out across the chest and sleeves, as redesigned by artist Tom Tosseyn. The collection is capital D Dark, rough and very real. It reminds me of rough kids from 90s street gangs. It’s very inspiring.
It only seemed appropriate to wear the striped prison-like sweatshirt with flared pants and platform shoes to spike this bad outfit with a drop of elegance. It has the perfect balance between rough and modern day femininity.
