Recent Alexander McQueen Kimono Sleeve Black & White Silk Dress

This dress is from a recent Alexander McQueen collection and the original retail was well over 4K. The dress is gorgeous. It is made from a beautifully weighted silk satin that has that same liquid feel the the best of the 1930s pieces did that were made from this same fabric. Like those dresses of the thirties this is also cut on the bias but with a more shaped silhouette. It is cut to flow over the body with a nipped in waist for shape and a V neckline at the front. The skirt flows and hugs the hips and then flares out in a wonderful soft draping at the lower hem that gives you fabulous movement when you walk or move. The sleeves are cut with a full kimono style drop sleeves. This adds a high sense of drama to the dress. The perfect finishing touch are those wide cream silk bands that run around the bottom hem of the skirt and around each wide cut sleeve. That touch of graphics with the contrast between the black and cream is spectacular. Excellent condition.

The fabric is self backed and it closes with a low set, hidden set zipper at the back and a hook & eye at the top of the back opening. Bias cut but the waist is seamed and has no give. The inner edge of the seam is open like a traditional kimono sleeve. Note that it would fully zip at the back on a girl a bit smaller then my dress form. Tagged a modern 38. It appears to have never been worn, or worn very little
