WOMEN'S AUTUMN/WINTER 2002 "SUPERCALIFRAGILISTIC"

A MAGICAL FAIRYTALE SEAM RUNS THROUGH THIS COLLECTION SHOWN IN THE CONCIERGERIE IN PARIS FAMOUSLY THE PLACE WHERE MARIE ANTOINETTE SPENT HER LAST DAYS.

White wolves stalk the upper stories as highwaymen and princesses rub shoulders with a subversion of school uniform and educational authority. Ultra feminine mousseline princess dresses are toughened by leather harnessing, fragile lingerie-inspired looks are finished with more SM leather detailing, caped backs and kimono sleeves add drama to tailored all in ones. Skinny striped blazers and gym skirts are only part of this story for which McQueen also brought back his signature bumster, best in gleaming silver leather.
