Description

A calf-length wool MacQueen tartan skirt with contoured slash pockets and rear zip. The skirt is punctured with a silver watch fob to contour its silhouette and allow skirt to fit like a trouser when the chain goes between the legs and pulls the seat of the skirt firm against the buttocks. The silver chain was made by jeweler and McQueen's friend Shaun Leane specifically for this collection. This appeared on the catwalk and is accompanied by it's original pattern. Alexander McQueen would have sketched, hand-sewn, and cut the patterns for this garment. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan.
