Lapel's Show

This is a detail from an Alexander McQueen blazer spotted on a recent Gilt sale. Lapels are a really underutilized piece of real estate, and an interesting avenue for creativity now that neckties are dead and pocket squares must be worn with care. Not for everyday wear, of course, but this sort of thing would be great on a velvet holiday jacket. Yes, Christian Lacroix has probably already done this, but we don't even want to know what that looks like.
