‘Spine’ corset on The Museum of Savage Beauty The ‘Spine’ corset is one of the most notable examples of McQueen’s collaboration with Shaun Leane which resulted in radical but beautiful jewellery and body sculpture.

Alexander McQueen S/S 1998 spine corset. The construction of this large body piece was complex, and Shaun Leane used a human skeleton to cast the corset. He crafted each bone by hand. The corset fastens like armour with three black leather buckle-straps.
