This exquisite creation by  Rima Zi is a true vision, practically beckoning for a night of dancing superb vintage statement jacket for the discerning vintage collector.

This is a fantastic quality Sequin Jacket in outstanding condition and a pinnacle of vintage elegance and expert craftsmanship. This exquisite piece pays homage to a time when every detail was meticulously crafted, resulting in a garment that exudes luxury and sophistication and looks like it has come right off the Studio 54 dance floor

This jacket's design is a testament to the art of handwork at its finest. It has been adorned by skilled artisans with a symphony of silver tube beads  create a bright blue and green peacock design the sequins meticulously integrated into the deep black silk chiffon. The harmonious blend of these elements creates a striking contrast, offering a sophisticated shimmer that captures the eye with subtlety and refinement. In order to bring this garment back to life we have completed a discrete repair to a seem break under the xyz arm and replaced the hook and eye button fastem

The high, understated collar and the absence of shoulder padding create a softly tailored silhouette that complements your figure. The long, straight-cut sleeves and the gentle flare towards the hem radiate timeless grace.

Beyond its visual appeal, the jacket possesses a subtle allure thanks to the semi-transparent nature of the silk chiffon beneath the sequins and beads. This touch of translucency adds to its overall charm, making it universally flattering for a variety of occasions.
