As you guys have probably noticed, us girls here at Lulu*s keep busy trying to keep the goods coming straight off the runways, trends, and celebrities and straight to you! We love to see new shipments come in that reflect the recent collections of our favorite designers.

We were pleasantly surprised when we unpacked a couple of things this week that reflect this trend. The Alexandra the Great Jacket [sold out!] and the Mini McQueen Skirt [sold out!] are big for this upcoming season, with its edge towards black and white houndstooth started by the great Alexander McQueen!

Alexander McQueen is a master of his trade, which he began training for at age 16 in London. He has gained respect around the world for his precision pattern making and tailoring. McQueen’s collections, which are comprised of mind boggling juxtapositions, are capturing because of the amount of “raw energy” spilling out of his designs.

This season, we see his play on a classic pattern, houndstooth, come all the way into our warehouse.
