Exclusive British fashion label Alexander McQueen has recently announced their fifth collaboration with The Rug Company – in a series that celebrates the majesty of Metamorphosis.
Sarah Burton, Creative Director at Alexander McQueen, and the fashion house team worked alongside the British rug manufacturers to design bold pieces that pay homage to the process of rebirth and renewal – and we can't wait to elevate our home decor with these ultra-stylish pieces.
Each rug is a distinct adaption of a specific look from the label's collections, inspired by the aesthetic of butterflies, beetles, and nature's ability to reinvent itself in ever more mystical ways.

The globally recognized fashion powerhouse is already famed for its daring designs that are juxtaposed with a respect for traditional craftsmanship – all of which are exhibited throughout the series. The exquisite pieces include Glasswings, featuring a striking part of butterfly wings, Crown Blossom with two celestial cranes, and Beetle. The latter presents an up-close abstraction of an elytron, a motif central to the handwriting of the house of McQueen.
The fifth collection comes after the labels first joined forces in 2010 but most closely follows the successful Folklore series from 2013. In her discussion of the series, Sarah Burton announced she was 'delighted to be part' of the collaboration, as The Rug Company shares Alexander McQueen's 'shared values of a love of nature and respect for 'tradition, handcraft, and innovation.'

Now the only question is which beautiful piece we invest in first…
