Rare F2005 Documented Runway Alexander McQueen Sweater

About

Fall 2005's collection was called "The Man Who Knew Too Much". The Alexander McQueen site says of this collection: "For the second time in his career, Alexander McQueen references The Birds for this collection a film that he remembers loving as a child principally because of the precise way in which the women featured choose to dress. Against a film-set backdrop flooded with red light models stride out in swing coats, pencil skirts, neat, cropped trousers and fitted chunky mohair all of which suit a modern-day Hitchcock heroine down to the ground. Given the source of inspiration this may be read as McQueen's interpretation of coordinated dressing almost vintage Hermes style crocodile sling-backs are teamed with matching handbags, for example. Hair is big, bouffant and blow dried and lips are painted true red." This sweater was shown on the runway belted and worn low on the shoulders, with a slim cut skirt and high boots. You could easily wear that same look now and feel just as fresh. It is a chunky cable knit sweater with a bit of a sixties feel. Huge knit floral bouquets sit on the hip and on the opposite shoulder. for the perfect balancing act These give the sweater a quirky school girl prom feel but in an ever so edgy way mixed with that classic English countryside feel that McQueen so often worked into his collections. We have also included a reference photo of the piece as photoed for Vogue that season. It is an amazing piece from one of the greats. Excellent, appears unworn condition. Fully lined through the body in a stretch nylon and slips over the head to wear. The exterior is a mix of wool and Alpaca. No size tag so please check actual measurements. The McQueen label is gone but it is guaranteed authentic and a twin to the runway picture.
