Fabulous rounded fold-over collar and cuffs are expertly detailed in white stitching and extended straps tie off with antiqued brass-like buckles. This finishing has the effect of the collar and cuffs being doubled. Generous dolman sleeves and dropped shoulders are modestly padded and are set between the navy blue acetate lining and the leather. A fabulous mop button run arches from upper arm to upper arm - very unique and avant garde - and the soft leather blouses over a comfortable elasticized navy blue knit waist band. Wear it as a jacket or a top. Either way it is an incredible piece by the late, great Gianfranco Ferre.
