This month saw the opening of fashion house Alexander McQueen’s first store in Macau, China

The new retail space is situated in Macau’s latest premiere leisure resort, Galaxy, which is home to world-class casinos, hoteliers and luxury shopping.

Inside, the 145 sq-m space has been divided into men’s ready-to-wear, women’s ready-to-wear and accessories. Feature walls of bespoke, plaster paneling display a cornucopia of wings, cactus flowers, seahorse tails and tangled leaves; tiny skulls and gargoyles can be seen nestling amongst the design.

Solid furniture with brass animal feet and monster claws sits atop the white cracked marble flooring, while the rest of the store is coloured with dove grey, lilac and soft gold. The inspiration for the space came from various sources including Rorschach ink blots, Francis Bacon paintings and signature trademarks from McQueen’s work.

The concept was conceived by Alexander McQueen’s creative director, Sarah Burton and was executed in conjunction with David Collins Studio. Burton says of the new retail space, “The collections will be presented in an environment that feels luxurious and precious which is also reflective of our design ethos."
