Lee Alexander McQueen (1969-2010) was one of the most important British fashion designers of the late twentieth and early twenty first centuries. He consistently pushed the boundaries of fashion with his visionary designs and their presentation in his spectacular catwalk shows.

This coat demonstrates McQueen's talent for tailioring and is beautifully cut and tailored throughout, with extraordinary construction, cut and seaming, including various inset godets and gussets. It is an excellent example of McQueen's creative cutting and construction.

Physical description

Cashmere coat with hood, made from thick double-sided cashmere in pale pink and rose-beige, darker pink panels and inset gussets. The coat pieced together with contrasting tones and colours, long tight sleeves with zips up forearms, metal zip down centre front.
