A unique un-used catwalk suit of soft gold brocade fabric. The trousers feature a single button front closure which was unusual at the time for McQueen. Trousers were made with one panel of fabric per leg with no outer seam to create a more sliming silhoeutte. The jacket features sleeves slashed from elbow the cuff and extended pointed collar. The fabric is sourced from upholstery materials from John Lewis Department Store in London by Ruti for the McQueen studio. Pictured is a version of the trousers used in the same fabric later in the “Dante” show. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan. Learn more about Alexander McQueen.
