Fergus Purcell, aka Fergadelic, is the go-to artist for a number of houses that rely on his street-influenced graphics to spruce up their collections around the periphery — which is to say, not the collections themselves. The spring men's collections from Marc by Marc Jacobs and McQ Alexander McQueen are but two houses that come to mind.
Now Fergadelic is venturing into fashion with a collaborative men's capsule for McQ, consisting of two custom designs for fall: the 'Scarred McQ' (on jersey tees or as knitwear) and the 'Frankenman.' The conjured images of unrefined, imperfect cretins are a seamless fit with Fergadelic's fetish for retro comics and homemade tattoos and with the brand's recurring themes of destruction and regeneration.
