Breathtaking 2002 runway show-stopper from the late and great Alexander Mcqueen. He was known for combining superb tailoring with a dramatic aesthetic inspired by various historical periods, British and Celtic tribalism and sexually charged fetish wear. McQueen's thematic shows were as much theater as fashion, with each piece of clothing worked into a dramatic narrative plotted by McQueen. The fabric on this gorgeous Victorian style jacket is a rich fully-lined houndstooth plaid wool. Just look at the sparkling 3-dimensional metallic gold bullton embroidery. I love the slightly padded structured shoulders and wide button-trimmed cuffs. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flares out below the knee with a dramatic back fishtail construction. A hard-to-find and iconic early Alexander McQueen treasure.
