McQ Swallow is a contemporary brand from Alexander McQueen which was founded in 2005.
In November 2011 a year after the sudden death of McQueen, the brand was brought back under the control of Sarah Burton, who happened to have worked closely with him from 1996, she is now the creative director of both the McQueen and McQ brand. The company announced it would open its first McQ standalone boutique in London 2012 and the brand would be presented at London Fashion Week for the first time. Today the brand has gone from strength to strength even after Alexander McQueen's death. The group announced the brand would continue on.
While McQ offers both menswear and womenswear clothing and accessories, here at Brother2Brother we offer the menswear products which are of a casual, everyday ease with a rebellious attitude feel to it. You will notice a few different logos used on the items, the swallow is a recurring symbol for McQ, used since the brand first began. This has since been given a fresh, contemporary feel. Over the years the logo has changed in colour and style. Nowadays the swallow is solid black in colour with skull-like eyes and a sharply pointed body. Another logo which is used amongst its garments is a triangle, circle and square shape combined into one.
The colours mainly used and those of which we stock are your classic black, white and greys in garments such as sweatshirts, t-shirts, hoodies and shirts. We are always introducing new core products to our website. The latest launch and design to McQ is known as 'Monster Stripe'. The monsters are inspired by the birth of acid house music, rave culture and iconic flyers of the period. This range makes its first appearance across McQ jersey and accessories for the SS18 collection.
