Spring Summer 2014 Campaign Starring Nicole Kidman

Starring in the Jimmy Choo Spring Summer 2014 campaign for her third season, Nicole Kidman strikes her most daring pose yet…Nature unleashed, with the modern jungle as the inspiration for the collection, the Academy Award® winning actress captures the vibrant sensuality of the natural world, shot by iconic photographer Sølve Sundsbø.

Revealing her thoughts about the new campaign, Nicole says:

“I really enjoyed working with Sølve, he is very creative but he is decisive and methodical in his direction. It was fun to shoot new and surprising perspectives, it felt a little bit daring, dangerous. I loved the minimal styling and how the shoes and bags became like a sensual second skin to me.”

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN WOMENSWEAR SHOW AUTUMN/WINTER 2014

INSPIRATION

A wild, romantic beauty. Beauty And The Beast, Forest undergrowth, flora and nocturnal fauna: roses, ivy, oak trees, moths, owls.

THE COLLECTION

A sensual and light approach to construction. The silhouette is free, unconstructed and empire -line. Capes, hoods, puffed and bell sleeves. Tiering, smocking, scalloping, pleating and pom-poms. Frilled and frayed hemlines fall to the ankle or knee. Trousers are narrow, cropped and boyish. Exaggerated collars and hoods are fastened with ribbons and bows through oversized silver eyelets.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN MEN’S AUTUMN/WINTER 2014

A strict silhouette: square-shouldered tailoring, elongated coats and narrow trousers.

The colour palette is from a John Deakin photograph and his photos of Lucian Freud and Oliver Bernard are printed onto shirts and woven on the back of silk coats.  Pleating appears on cropped kilts worn over trousers as well as the back of long coats.  Graphic and symmetrical lines feature; patch worked into a grey jacket, printed as geometric patterns on mohair jumpers or woven as gold lines on evening coats.  There are a variety of plaids, from oversized checks in tonal greys to woven tartans in white or pink and black.  Zips are functional and decorative – fastened on the sides of knitted tops, cutting through coats and jackets or placed as stripes on a kilt. Words from Oliver Bernard’s Peace Poem are embroidered on coats and shirt collars.

“Thanks to the John Deakin Archive and to Victoria and Albert Museum, London for the use of the John Deakin images of Lucian Freud and Oliver Bernard.  Special thanks to Bella Freud and Kate Bernard.”

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN WOMEN’S PRE-AUTUMN/WINTER 2014

The house’s codes are upheld but renewed: eased, elongated and reduced with a nod to Nineties tailoring and layering.

The silhouette is sinuous but never constricting.

Tailoring is borrowed from menswear. Long-line double-breasted jackets have a high rolled shoulder and slender waist. Trousers are pleat-fronted and slouchy, with an extra-wide leg and exaggerated cuff. Panels of leaf jacquard satin, basting and an ivory washed silk lapel discretely disrupt surfaces.

Skirts and dresses are languid, have deep V-necklines and fall to just above the ankle, skimming the body. Seams are sliced and edged with metal embroideries. Jacquards are woven with stylised silver flowers. Panels of heavy washed satin hover on a base of silk tulle. Lace and lingerie details – crinolines, petticoats and camisoles – are further embellished with rows of crushed frills and ruffles: Victoriana undone.

Oversized, trapeze line coats and fur perfecto jackets emphasise a play between the masculine and the feminine, the haute and the humble.
