This sumptuous 1920's devoré and silk chiffon jacket, in a floral pattern in autumnal shades of red, green yellow and pink set against a black silk base, edged with longline silk fringing in a matching colour palette, is a rare piece to behold.
The open cut neckline is accented by a slim straight collar that joins the front of the edge to edge cut. The elegant shoulder line is accented by gathered smocking stitches along the shoulder seams, that radiate into soft pleats along the yoke. The full length sleeves are edged with black coney fur cuffs. The timeless straight line of the jacket is accented by an ornate brass and early plastic clasp, that draws the jacket together and sets off the scalloped hemline. Finished with longline silk fringing in matching shades of pink, red, green, yellow and black, this wonderful jacket showcases the iconic craftsmanship and design of the era.
