Vestiaire Collective Honors Alexander McQueen With Archival Sale Curated by Isabella Blow's Niece

Including the late designer’s iconic Bumster pants.

Luxury re-sale platform Vestiaire Collective has announced an archival sale of historic pieces by Alexander McQueen, an initiative paying tribute to the tenth anniversary of the groundbreaking designer’s death. The archive, which includes pieces from historic McQueen shows including his post-grad collection, “Highland Rape” and “The Hunger” (Spring/Summer 1996), was curated by Harriet Verney, the niece of McQueen’s collaborator and close friend Isabella Blow.

Collectors will also find pieces from McQueen’s Fall/Winter 1999, FW02, SS03 and final SS10 shows, among other landmark garments. Shoes and accessories include a range of the designer’s signature skull-adorned clutches, sculptural heels and a pair of intricate buckled boots from “Angels and Demons,” the collection that Sarah Burton completed following McQueen’s passing.

Vestiaire Collective’s archival Alexander McQueen collection is available now on the Vestiaire Collective website and app.
