Alexander McQueen for Givenchy Couture, Fall 1997

About

From only his earliest days at Givenchy we have this possibly one of a kind Givenchy Couture skirt from Alexander McQueen. The collection was sharp, sexy, 90% leather and 100% 90s. Hemlines were short and everything was fitted up tight to the body. After a run of models in leopard, McQueen sent out none other than Naomi Campbell. In a dress molded to her body like the others only now her's with a swish in the skirt, and a victorian lace cut out design. It was the beginning of McQueen's signature Victorian references and asymmetrical hemlines which would shape his following spring collection as well as the decade to follow. What makes this piece exciting is that it was shown as a dress. This means, as is common in couture, the design was altered for ready to wear. A merit indeed which makes the few mars to the light beige leather forgivable. A gorgeous gem from the beginning of the genius and sadly too short lived career of Alexander McQueen.
