What to wear for your next event, a one of a kind unique statement jacket of course. Statement pieces are all you need to create a wow outfit!   

Incredible dramtic statement silk jacket from the 1980s in our favourite vintage fabric. l am always excited to find examples and  this  is extra special because  it is extremely flattering once on.  This style emulates so many fashion designer greats.  

It is made of a sheer lightweight slub silk fabric, that is in immaculate condition in only black  but gives this item that distinct vintage lived in feel that we all covet. But it's thesleeves that are in a league of their own.  with their pleat design at the shoulder to give that dramatic shape, bolstered with shoulder pads and the lace and appliqué fabric is what exaggerates the sleeves and brings it all together with leg o mutton cuffs and black satin rosettes. Intricate gothic Lily flours and fringe beads adorn the form of the jacket, again on the most exquisite vintage condition. This is such an incredible vintage piece packed with so many vintage details it will not disappoint the discerning vintage collection. It  is a piece that really needs very little styling as its a true classic that has a life of its own when on.  Style with this seasons fettish leggings or leather pants for your next night out or simply denim.
