Indulge in the refined elegance of the vintage 1980s Escada tuxedo blazer jacket, meticulously crafted by the esteemed Margaretha Ley, the visionary behind the iconic Escada brand. Inspired by the timeless sophistication of vintage Yves Saint Laurent, this exquisite piece epitomizes understated luxury and impeccable tailoring.

Margaretha Ley's discerning eye for detail is evident in every aspect of this classic silhouette. The jacket's slight fitted design gently accentuates the waist, flattering the feminine form with effortless grace, a hallmark of Ley's commitment to celebrating the inherent beauty of women through her designs.

A distinctive touch of femininity is introduced through Escada's signature pink satin collar, seamlessly extending into the interior of the blazer. This subtle yet luxurious detail reflects Ley's dedication to infusing her creations with opulent accents that elevate the overall aesthetic with refined sophistication. The double-button fastenings are elegantly encrusted with diamonds, a testament to Ley's belief in the power of subtle embellishments to enhance timeless elegance without overpowering the design.

It is also very helpful if you are aware of your own particular dimensions. If you're not sure, you may easily approximate them by measuring an item of clothes from your own wardrobe that fits well and is laid flat.
