S/S 1998 Alexander McQueen 'The Golden Shower' Suit

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Based on the runway presentation, this amazing suit is the RTW version and I love it. It is so rare to find his really early pieces and this one is just fabulous. It is in remarkable condition and is a bold statement piece as well as highly collectible. The pinstripe wool has a bright blue stripe that runs through it and this blue is used as an element in both the lining and on the checked wool insets that run down and across the pant. Despite this being from early on in his career you can still see the master tailoring and nod to a man's cut. The trousers are flat fronted, straight legged and flat fronted. The jacket has a beautifully tailored cut and bold shoulders making them sit up and higher then a traditional suit and giving them what still feels like a couture aspect. Excellent, museum quality condition

Tim Blanks said of this collection when he introduces the video to it on his "Throwback Thursdays with Tim Blacks"

The designer was famous for his runway spectacles, but this one in particular lingers with our Editor-at-Large, not because it featured a rookie model by the name of Gisele Bündchen, but because of its extraordinary emotional resonance. "It's proof that he was a magician."

The jacket is lined in a fine grade blue silk. It closes with buttons at the front. Each cuff has three buttons and the buttons holes are finished but decorative only. There is still an extra button sewn inside the waist band. Pockets at each hip of the pant and hidden pockets lie along the seam of the jacket. There is also a buttoned interior pocket. The base color is a deep blue and the fabric is a light wool.
