Fashions from the Alexander McQueen men's ready to wear fashion show in Milan.

At Burberry, where the brand’s heritage has seemed more of a liability than an asset in recent seasons, creative director Christopher Bailey surprised a lot of people at the shows when he sent models down the runway wearing shirts in a version of the familiar Nova check pattern, and closed the show with a catwalk full of Burberry scarves. Alexander McQueen took refuge in his enfant terrible MO, referencing it in a collection filled with Victorian-era thugs, and even a few real-life London pugilists to help model his collection of abattoir chic, which included ominous-looking leather aprons, with crimson spatters on black Victorian leather. — Adam Tschorn Pictured: Alexander McQueen for fall-winter 2009, Milan.
