Iconic Alexander McQueen Jewelry Archive Goes Up For Auction.

Alexander McQueen

A sizable lot of Alexander McQueen jewelry, designed by frequent collaborator Shaun Leane is up for grabs at Sotheby’s.

The 42-piece collection features some of McQueen’s most iconic metal accessories, including a crown of thorns, chainmail gloves, and a metal corset.

“I believe that the collection represents a level of creative freedom that has no parallel today,” said Leane. “It is my hope that the endless inspiration and unadulterated joy that these pieces have brought to me… will now be shared with collectors, museums and institutes from around the world.”

Sotheby’s will also feature the collection in a brief exhibition, titled A Life of Luxury which opens on November 30, ahead of the auction on December 4.
