F2006 RTW McQueen Leopard and Fur Jacket
Fall 2006's collection was called "The Widows of Culloden". The Alexander McQueen site says of this collection:
"The inspiration here is highly personal – the designer’s own heritage – which goes at least some way towards explaining the exquisite hand-craftsmanship that goes into each piece as well, of course, as bird head-dresses and McQueen tartan. The collection is luxurious and romantic but melancholic and even austere at the same time. The silhouette – all nipped waists, bustles and exaggerated hip lines – is designed to exaggerate a woman’s form and each piece is unique, a one-off couture creation with emotional content intended to be handed down from generation to generation like the most precious of heirlooms."
This jacket is from the RTW collection based on the runway. It is a fabulous silk leopard print jacket with a trim of velvet and mink. It is cut with the amazing precision that one expects to see in a McQueen piece. The sleeves are cut glove length and with that slight curve that he loved. The seam work through the body of the jacket is incredible - it is pieced in a series of perfectly spaced seams to nip in the waist. It is in excellent, museum quality condition.
