Iconic late 80's Diane Freis silk jacket with sequin, seed bead and bugle bead embroidery. Silk print, which is printed over a metallic jacquard, is a gorgeous multicolor print featuring jungle leaves with leopards hidden in the brush. Combinations of seed and bugle beads, along with sequins add texture and dramatic sparkle to the print. The jacket is embroidered front, back and sleeves. Jacket is framed with a contrasting black jacquard borders and is fully lined in the same fabric. Jacket has a decorative button front neck closure, and hidden snaps along the placket (can be worn opened or closed). Shape is slightly boxy with shoulder pads to give it shape. For an embellished jacket it is extremely light weight and in fantastic condition! This is a WOW piece! Great over a silk slip dress for evening, or with a t-shirt and jeans for a dinner out!
