It’s a Jungle Out There (Autumn/Winter 1997) is the tenth collection of the British fashion designer Alexander McQueen, and the first one released (under his brand) after his debut as the creative director of the French Haute Couture house Givenchy. The collection was presented at the Borough Market (Southwark, London) in February of 1997 and it featured a total of 75 looks inspired by Thomson’s gazelle. Fur, silk, leather and acid-washed denim were used for the confection of the garments; additionally, some of the pieces featured antlers and taxidermy crocodile heads, human hair and iron jewellery. Acclaimed by the press, this collection restated McQueen as one of the leading figures in fashion after his highly negatively criticized Givenchy’s debut. In 2011, several pieces were displayed in the exhibition dedicated to the designer’s career, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and, in 2015, at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
