Pattern: Alexander McQueen

published on 31 March 2004

Alexander McQueen allows us to examine and assemble the pattern for a kimono-inspired jacket from his Autumn/Winter 2003 ‘Scanners’ collection. The brutally sharp tailoring, for which this label is synonymous, is seen in the jacket’s strong linear construction and carefully layered fabric sections. A collision of Western Victoriana and Eastern traditional dress, this garment, like so much of McQueen’s work, references historical detailing, whilst remaining quintessentially modern.
