Long Live McQueen: The Show Must Go On

Long Live McQueen - The Brand Must Go On

Long Live McQueen - The Brand Must Go On

WWD just reported that PPR/The Gucci Group, the company that has a 51% stake in the Alexander McQueen brand has decided to continue the McQueen label.

Robert Polet, the president and CEO of Gucci Group stated: “We believe in the future of the brand…Lee was very proud of the people working in his company, and so am I.”

McQueen’s A/W 2010 collection will still be shown in Paris in a few weeks.

All designers have assistants – I’m just wondering who will take the helm of Alexander McQueen.  Will they promote an assistant?  Or bring in a big name?  Either way, I’m interested to see who will be named – I can’t really imagine anyone doing a brand as visionary as Alexander McQueen any justice.  Time will tell.  Who do you think should be named the designer of Alexander McQueen?
