In 1953, Cashin teamed with leather importer Philip Sills and pioneered the use of leather for high fashion. Designing for her globetrotting lifestyle, she developed “layered” outfits, inspired by traditional Chinese dress, with the objective of creating a flexible wardrobe for modern nomads, whether a day’s travel was from country to country or city to suburb. Here is a fine example of her truly inspirational designing. Blue leather jacket with white stitching, pearl snap buttons and gold hardware as belt loops.
Very Good - Excellent Vintage Condition (a few minor nicks in leather - see picture 5). The cut of the jacket is straight 40" for bust, waist and hips. Length 27.5".
