This amazingly beautiful piece comes to you courtesy of one of Ginny & Harriot's fabulous consignors. She leads a fascinating and exciting life and this jacket sums it up in a nutshell.
This piece was designed by Christian Lacroix in the early 90s and made especially for our friend using Japanese silk brocade that was procured by a relative of hers and brought back to the states in the 1950s.
It has a glorious collar that can be worn in a wide variety of ways. It extends to the back and can hang like a capelet.
The jacket is double breasted and has beautiful gold and pearl buttons.
It has several snaps in addition to the buttons so that you can wear it snapped or let the collar drop open in a dramatic v.
The sleeves are long and slender with matching button details and the slightest bit of gold brocade at the cuffs.
It is fully lined.
Expertly tailored and constructed to perfection.

bust - up to 42"
waist - 38"
hips - 42"
shoulders - 16"
sleeve length - 23"
overall length - 23"

shown belted because I think I was on a big belting everything kick the day of this shoot. It looks lovely either way and the sizing of this jacket is versatile.

It's in great condition. Normal wear for the age of the fabric. There is ever so slight fraying in the gold brocade in a few places. There is a little discoloration on the interior neckline that is not visible when wearing. Overall the flaws are extremely minor and the jacket is still very wearable.

There is no tag on the inside because it was handmade especially for her. Please let me know if you have any questions at all about the piece.

For reference, model is 5'7" 36/27/37. It was just a title big when belt was buttoned at its tightest.
