We fell in love with this gorgeous vintage brocade jacket the minute we saw it! It reminded us of the YSL Ballets Russes collection from the late 1970's in its design and with its braided trim and attention to detail, but it is unlabeled.
The fabric of this jacket is in rich jewel tones, with gold metallic threads woven in throughout. It is lined in quilted bright pink fabric and the collar is trimmed in mink.
The sleeves are gathered at the shoulders and have elastic at the cuffs, so they can be pushed up for a more casual look.
We acquired this from an estate we purchased that had a jaw dropping collection of only the finest designer clothing (including Oscar de la Renta, Yves Saint Laurent and Dior) and every piece she owned had a special element that made it stand out! She unfortunately had a habit of removing tags when they scratched her neck, so this jacket remains somewhat of a mystery!
Fits up to a 42" bust comfortably.
