The new store for fashion designer Alexander McQueen was recently completed in Los Angeles on Melrose Avenue. This is the fourth store that Architect William Russell of Pentagram has commissioned for McQueen and it won’t be stopping there. There are plans for more stores in Las Vegas, Moscow, Bahrain, Osaka and Vilnius.
Upon entering the LA store you are greeted by the bottom half of the ‘Angel of the Americasâ€™ (a sculpture by Robert Bryce Muir) whom is installed inside the glowing, circular skylight above the entrance. The theatrical quality of the interior, inspired by McQueenâ€™s extraordinary catwalk shows, compliments the clothes while the limited palette of materials and precise detailing allow the collection to stand out.
