Description


A black long sleeve silk jersey dress with pale nude silk mesh insert and asymmetrical hemline created for commercial production to appear alongside catwalk offerings for "The Hunger" collection. The silk mesh insert starts on the right-hand upper chest, following the asymmetrical neckline, and wraps around the lower ribcage ending at the top of the same shoulder. These designs, as seen in the companion sketches also on offer (lot 5047), play on McQueen's technique and explorations of slashed motifs and designs. These slashed jersey designs were created by Ruti and Alexander McQueen for their Italian manufacturers Panesi to recreate. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan.
