F2005 RTW Alexander McQueen Cable Knit Sweater

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 is from the RTW collection based on the runway. It is a chunky cable knit sweater with amazing sleeves that are actually created on a curve with a hige twisted cable design running up each. It is cropped and scooped upwards in the front. The buttons are wonderful - large leather knots in a deep brown perfectly offsets the cream wool. It is in excellent, museum quality condition.
