This rare vintage 1990's Cheap and Chic by Moschino novelty print blazer is one of Franco Moschino's iconic pieces! The yellow pages print spoofs designer labels by giving them different names. Chanel becomes Cocco Che Bel, Hermes is Charmes, Gianfranco Ferre is Gianfranco Per Me, Prade is Strada, Levis is Elvis, Versace is Vernice, Etro is RETOR, etc. But Moschino had just as much fun making fun of himself, and put his own various labels in the design as well!
This fabulous jacket is in a muted fluorescent yellow, with orange, red, and black accents. This blazer is only partially lined with outer fabric along the lapels and fully lined sleeves. The shoulders are slightly more structured with thin shoulder pads.
In keeping with his love of incorporating Italy into his designs, Mr. Moschino even used Italian Gettone Telefonico (phone tokens) as buttons along the cuffs of the sleeves and at the center front opening. There are two functional pockets along the hips and one functional breast pocket and there is a back vent.
This was purchased at Bergdorf Goodman and a version of this is part of the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. There is a Bergdorf Goodman label sewn into the Cheap and Chic one.
Made in Italy of 100% Rayon and the lining is 60% Acetate and 40% Rayon.
This is labeled a US 10 IT 44, and we estimate this would best fit a modern size 10 or M.
SLEEVE LENGTH: 25"
LENGTH (from back collar): 29"
BACK VENT: 9"
