2005 Alexander McQueen Runway Burgundy Wool Knit Hourglass Sweater Dress
An ultra chic and highly coveted Alexander McQueen lifetime burgundy-red cable knit wool hourglass sweater dress dating back to his beloved 2005 fall-winter collection. As shown, this gorgeous well-documented dress was runway look #2. Vogue stated about this collection, "Tippi Hedren and Marilyn Monroe. Biker molls and sweater girls. You got it: Alexander McQueen went to the sixties, all the way, for fall. With its filched movie and rock 'n' roll themes, the collection read as a knowing vehicle, a McQueen director's cut. Glacially restrained tailoring, early rocker chic, the classic Hollywood ball gown moment: He had 'em all. Plus great hair, great music, and a roar of old-school glamour." This unforgettable 'sweater girl' dress is such a perfect example of why the magic of Alexander McQueen is so missed. The fabric used is magnificent; a luxurious and soft stretch cable-knit in a rich burgundy red color. There are gorgeous metallic-gold accented floral appliqués throughout which gives the garment so much depth and texture. The neck is cut wide to show off the collarbone and even a shoulder if you desire. I love how the flattering hourglass cut flows into a flirty flared fishtail hemline. The hem is trimmed with the most lovely pom-pom tassels. We added many pictures so you can appreciate this museum worthy wearable dress by one of the greatest designers who ever lived.
