There is something so poetic about slipping on a McQueen piece. He had the ability to balance artistry & commerciality – which is immediately recognizable in the S/S ’98 ‘Golden Shower Suit’.
This is an excellent tailored piece from Alexander’s early work. The masculine cut, juxtaposed with the bold shoulders & pinstripe details, I felt like Madonna in ‘Express Yourself.’ 90s fashion dream achieved! I also love the unexpected bold blue stripe that runs down the pant leg – an unexpected design detail that really make’s this suit one of a kind.
My only regret about this week’s look is that I didn’t pair it with a monocle ☹
