This rare Alexander McQueen suit from S/S 2002, the "Dance of the Twisted Bull" collection, comprises a corseted jacket and an asymmetrical ruffled skirt. The fitted jacket features sculpted padded shoulders, long sleeves with buttoned cuffs, front lacing and the most intricate boning and light padding to front and back that is traced by the external stitching. The skirt is widely flared, ultra full and moves fantastically. It features an asymmetrical hemline with tiers of raw-edged ruffles and closes with a side zipper and metal hook and eye. Both pieces are made of a sandy beige cotton. The jacket features an internal waistband and is fully lined, the skirt is left unlined. Made in Italy.
