A rare unused pale nude silk mesh square-cut sleeveless tank top with black thorn graphic printed by McQueen friend and print designer Simon Ungless in a design crawling up the torso from the waistline. McQueen himself would have sketched and designed this item and been involved with the pattern cutting. Due to the delicate nature of this silk fabric, some tearing has occurred along edges and at shoulders, and although in overall good condition, the print shows signs of diminished intensity in some areas. This is an original piece created by the McQueen studio and printed by Simon Ungless at legendary fashion school Central St Martins. It is from the same group of items as the runway version pictured on model Emma Balfour. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan. Learn more about Alexander McQueen.
