This gorgeous silky jacket was made in the 1980s by Fleur de Paris, a New Orleans based millinery, which also produces couture bridal and evening-wear. It features shoulder pads to create a flattering silhouette— they can also be removed. There is gorgeous lace appliqué on the front shoulder area, with some open work. The fabric is draped beautifully, and two custom-made buttons hold the collar open. The waistband at the back keep the silhouette flattering, and not overly flowy. My favorite part about this piece is the unexpected open cut-out in the back. This jacket has a matching dress and was made as a part of a bridal look — it makes a super chic modern bridal look (think rehearsal dinner, bridal shower...) but I love it just as much with jeans or an LBD.
THE MATCHING DRESS is available in my shop as well!
Waist: 32" (but it's open)
Length: 23. 5" to longest point
Great vintage condition. There is a very faint and unnoticeable marking on the back of the jacket's left arm.
