"The Hunger" Grey Mohair Bumsters With Original Pattern Panel SS 1996

This lot has closed

Estimate: $10000+


A documented rare original pair of iconic mohair "Bumster" trousers with 2 inch front zipper marking the McQueen signature extremely low waistline. These trousers feature a straight leg and inseam cut just above the ankle and are in overall good condition, with three small fabric aberrations located on the front waistband, above the zipper, and at the upper right thigh. This abbreviated length was carried over from McQueen's earliest collections and continues to be used by the house to this day. This original catwalk item comes with a partial front pattern panel. These trousers were photographed with the Grey Open Front Torso Jacket 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.
