S/S 1999 "No 13" Collection Alexander McQueen Runway Dress

Shockingly rare, limited edition, Alexander McQueen piece based on the pictured runway dress from the Spring Summer 1999 collection. Very few of these were made and this particular collection was not well photographed except for the closing Shalom performance where she is painted in her dress while standing on a moving platform built into the stage.

The dress is amazing a precursor to many of his iconic design elements in later collections. The buckle bondage elements became a common theme and his workmanship in leather in unmatched. The dress buckles behind the neck and drops in a wide swoop from there. The back is left completely and utterly bare. The patches are a combination of glossed palest green leather, a white suede and then that sea blue leather. The natural color leather straps at the back of the neck and at the lower back add a stark contrast. Heavy rawhide whip stitching finish. An amazing piece and utterly collectible.

This dress ended up being sold to an important museum and is now held in their archives. From the same, original owner as the dress shown here, we also have available a runway skirt and halter ensemble in pink and cream patchwork leather - click here to view and purchase that one
