Alexander Mcqueen 2004 S/S DELIVERANCE suit

About the Item

The Spring/Summer 2004 collection, titled "Deliverance," was a standout. Inspired by the 1969 film "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" which revolves around a Depression-era dance marathon, the collection showcased McQueen's ability to transform narrative and emotion into physical form. The runway show itself was a performance, featuring models in a dance marathon setting, which highlighted the despair and exhaustion portrayed in the film. The clothing was a mix of 1930s-inspired silhouettes with McQueen’s signature modern twists, demonstrating his skill in tailoring and historical reference. This tailored suit is meticulously crafted with hand-sewn patchwork that incorporates elements of men's shirting alongside a blend of glossy and matte cottons. Reflecting the resourcefulness of the Depression era, the suit uses only materials that would have been available at the time. It's quite uncommon to find both elements of the suit together, making this complete ensemble a particularly exciting discovery. The suit boasts remarkable craftsmanship evident in the patch designs, deliberately frayed threads, and small slash pockets at the front. It features raw-edged hems on both items and unfinished buttonholes accompanied by the buttons themselves. The trousers are distinctively designed at the top and fasten from the front, while the fully lined jacket includes gathered details at the back and patches on the elbows. The patchwork showcases a variety of patterns, including checks and stripes in hues of cream, taupe, burgundy, and gray against a cream-toned background. Produced in Italy from 100% cotton and marked as size 44, this outfit continues to reveal new intricacies upon closer inspection. For aficionados of vintage Alexander McQueen pieces, this suit represents an exceptional addition to their collection.

Located in CAPELLE AAN DEN IJSSEL, ZH
Stunning leopard 3 piece set is notable piece from Vivienne Westwood's 1994 fw collection. The print made its debut in October 1993 during the Fall/Winter 1994 "Café Society' collection, representing one of the designer's most iconic moments. On that memorable occasion, the jacket adorned the graceful model, Helena Christensen.

Vivienne Westwood, a challenger of fashion authority, draws inspiration from Charles Frederick Worth, the 19th-century founder of haute couture. By incorporating elements like ivory tassels, Westwood transforms the traditional Victorian bustle...
