The initial spark of inspiration for the McQueen Collection came from a wooden jewelry box I came across on one of my layovers in Asia. This small box consisting of thin wood sides with overstuffed soft fabric on the interior was striking and elegant. When it came time to sketch out a new collection, I started with this idea and it morphed into the collection. Instead of concealing the joints, the metal joints were  made visible, and added to the collection out of necessity for support. The detailing is inspired by the stripes on the vintage Tag Heuer watch.
