The Alexander McQueen Rug Company Party!

We went to the Alexander McQueen Rug company party which was held at the Avenue Road store to celebrate McQueen's rugs and pillows he designed for The Rug Company. It took him three years to design them with The Rug Company and this is technically McQueen's last collection. The McQueen rugs are sooo special and gorgeous because they are all handmade and made out of the finest wools, cashmere and silk yarns. They are couture rugs!

The gold and black rug (photographed below) with the dragon in the center is called the military brocade print and was a real standout. McQueen also designed a hummingbird print, a skull print and a feather print. We are holding the skull and hummingbird pillows below and are totally obsessed with them! The Rug company has also collaborated with a other designers like Vivienne Westwood, Marni, Alice Temperley, Paul Smith, Matthew Williamson, Diane Von Furstenberg and many more. They are also doing rugs with Giles Deacon that are coming out in the future...YES!! We also loved the Vivienne Westwood British flag pillow and the pillow with the patchwork house on it which was designed by a label called Committee. This is the first Rug party we have ever been to and it was really cool because all of the carpets were laying on top of each other and they had two big guys wearing white gloves grabbing a corner and pulling the rugs back slowly to see the next one underneath. These rugs are sooo gorgeous and like a piece of Art, we could never imagine walking on them with shoes on!
