Alexander McQueen Jacket, Obi & Skirt

My client purchased the skirt of this set in the Fall of 2003 and the jacket a season later. She was thrilled when she obtained the jacket as the texture is a good, solid match to the skirt and the proportion mimic the look of the intention of the Fall 2003 runway that the skirt was produced from. The skirt is very high waisted - it is formed to hug the torso to just under the bust in a tight sheath and then cascades out in a stylized version of its earlier fifties contemporaries. It actually has light boning through the sides and an inner skirt of silks and net that turn into four full layers under the top silk as it nears the hem. The construction is on par with couture and I love the tightly pleated hem detailing that is finished with a dyed fir trim! The jacket is as equally amazing. It is cut almost like a female tuxedo with a silk satin lapel and low hidden buttons. The inside collar is doubled with the inner facing striped in silk and the second under-collar the Asian feel silk brocade shown. It has its original, reversible belt that zips into place. Both pieces were meticulously sgored and cared for and are like new and in Museum quality! A rare and wonderful set with both pieces dating pre-death.

(note that I will consider selling separately - you may contact me to discuss further but would prefer to† have it go as a set)
