There’s no doubt that Alexander McQueen created some of the most jaw-dropping couture of the past decade.

Designer Edouard Daunas of Martin Patrick Evan has come up with Raw Nature, a range of silk and wool rugs that have taken their colours and patterns from well-known McQueen outfits and accessories.
