Alexander McQueen Label to Launch Men's Underwear



    Apparently, Alexander McQueen had been working on a men's underwear line at the time of his death last month, and the label is planning to move forward for a slated June release.

    We've got no idea what he would have wished, but the McQueen label is certainly moving quickly in the wake of the designer's death last month.  McQueen had designed a collection of underwear and pajamas and a pair of limited-edition boxers benefitting various AIDS charities that will come to fruition this summer.  Designs feature the requisite McQueen skulls, bones and the like, and there are plans to expand into military-style jammies and swimwear in 2011. 

    The initial collection will retail between roughly $50 for undies to a whopping $555 for a pajama set at and high-end department stores in the US, UK, France, Italy and Japan.
