Item 603 - "Banshee" Grey Military Cropped Jacket With High Collar AW 1994 Catalog 587 (Jul 2020)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $2,500.00
Sold Price: $35,750.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Well-documented jacket with extra-high collar, composed of gray and black coating wool with empire-line sleeve, sliced and open armpits and delicate pinched seam shoulders. Its gold military braiding on the collar culminates at the back with a three leaf-motif and peaked accent on each sleeve surrounding a black wool cuff. This one-of-a-kind jacket created by Alexander McQueen himself, (including sketches, pattern cutting and hand-stitching), is from Look 18 worn on the catwalk by model Gin Clarke. This was the first item given to Ruti from Alexander McQueen and was featured in "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2012 and it's companion exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in 2015. This jacket appears on page 67 of the exhibition catalogue "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" photographed by Sølve Sundsbø. This very rare early example of the "Banshee" collection was also photographed by Nick Knight and styled by Katy England for the Spring 2015 issue of Another magazine in tribute to Lee Alexander McQueen prior to the opening of "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan.
