Deceased designer Alexander McQueen was always known for his over-the-top, intricate designs, but the brand also has a lesser known sister brand, and the McQ Pre-Fall 2012 collection is just as impressive yet ultimately more wearable.

The line was inspired by the 1967 film 'Far From the Madding Crowd' and is beautifully dark and artistic, just like the film itself. While the McQ Pre-Fall 2012 collection is a bit more ladylike than most collections from the McQueen brand, the tough edginess that the design house is known for is still there in the accessories. Wide black belts, cropped leather gloves, and motorcycle-inspired leather ankle boots add a modern edge to the retro silhouettes and prim, feminine patterns.
