One of the attractions of Haute Couture is the intricacy in the details of every design and the fact that each garment is made precisely to the measurements of the owner. When Fast Fashion chains are knocking off ready to wear runway looks in hours, the Haute Couture still remains so rarefied that it becomes difficult to appropriate but certainly inspires. This Alexander McQueen for Givenchy Haute Couture celadon linen coat dress is impossible to knock off and almost as difficult to describe as the fabric swoops across the body in asymmetric waves, the collar dramatically extends over the shoulders, and the elaborately seamed and paneled back makes this as intoxicating coming as it is going. Although McQueen designed at Givenchy just for a few short seasons to mixed results, this custom design of engineered splendor is both one-of-a-kind and a triumph!
