Fall 2010 Alexander McQueen Black Scalloped Lace Wrap Dress

This lovely Alexander McQueen dress is from the 2010 collection which is significant because the presentation that year was the last of his work that he did before committing suicide. This was part of the look book that was produced for stores and would be a combination of the work that McQueen did proceeding his death and then the designs were finished by Sarah Burton who took over the house.

The wrapped, black lace number, perfectly captures the aesthetics of McQueen. The fabric is a very fine, black lace that is placed over a nude silk chiffon lining through the body and the no lining under the sleeves. This gives the illusion from a distance that the girl wearing it is wrapped in nothing but a thin layer of lace. I love how the edges that cross over at the front follow the scalloped design on the lace. This creates a gorgeous framing of the neck and adds extra detail as it runs down the front and follows the curve of the skirt. The sleeves are long and slim with a zipper at each cuff and that same scalloped finish. The wrap cut of the dress highlights every curve but without feeling too clingy. The skirt is cut to hug around the hips and curves up along the front edges. This back part of the skirt hangs lower and this wrapped effect creates a beautiful curving line. I have included the McQueen belt that came with it. It is a combination of black leather and polished stones of the buckle. It has never been worn and has its original tags still attached. Excellent condition

Fully lined through the body in a nude silk chiffon and wraps to close with hidden set, fabric covered snaps to secure it in place at the front. Zippers at each cuff. Tagged a modern size 38. The belt and dress are unworn and have their original tags attached. It originally sold at Bergdorf's for $6.233. Note that the belt is too big for the waist of the dress and marked a size 44. It would have to be resized but came with it so I am including it.
