An inflatable soap bubble was home to the Alexander McQueen SS22 show, which took place atop a London car park.
Chilean architect Smiljan Radic designed the dome, which was the setting for the first Alexander McQueen womenswear show in London in 20 years – and the label’s first show in 18 months.
The collection was shown on the roof terrace of a ten-storey car park in Wapping’s Tobacco Dock, with the show’s title, London Skies, apparently inspired by the cloudy scenes outside the McQueen team’s studio. Chairs were arranged in circles inside the dome, with models entering the space from below via a set of stairs.
As well as offering guests 360-degree views of the city, Radic’s dome was created with a sustainable element – powered by hydrotreated vegetable oil and designed to be disassembled and reused for future events.
