Very avant garde slouchy vintage Issey Miyake black draped jacket, bearing his Plantation label.

I had a time figuring out how this buttoned and draped at first. One of the challenges - and the fun - of the great Japanese designers Miyake, Yamamoto, and Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons.

This piece features a deep v neck (great for layering), dropped shoulders, and it drapes across the front on either side, attaching into well hidden buttonholes with real abalone shells, which Miyake used shiny-side down (well of course he did!). There are two large side pockets, set sort of on their sides due to the draping, with welt openings and topstitching.

The back is cut longer than the front, with Miyake's version of a classic shirt-cut back.

Wear with slouchy wide cut trousers, silver minimalist jewelry, slash of crimson lipstick. (I've got a fabulous pair of linen Stella McCartney wide leg trousers it'd look outstanding with. Not vintage, so obviously not listed here, but contact me if you're interested.)

Made of one of Miyake's high tech polyesters, in soot black.
