S/S 1989 MOSCHINO COUTURE! "In Love We Trust" Cream Gold & Black Embroidered Top

About the Item

Early Moschino pieces designed by Franco Moschino himself – often referred to as Italian fashion's "enfant terrible" – within the short period when he launched the House of Moschino in 1983 until he passed away in 1994 are sought after and highly collectible. This treasure, like several others that will be listed gradually comes direct from a German socialite and fashion collector so has not been on the market prior to this. This exceptional and rare to find vintage Moschino Couture top is part of Franco Moschino's coveted "In Love We Trust" collection from Spring/Summer 1989. The cow design appeared in his 1985 collection for the first time (see reference photos). It is a wearable collectors piece which captures the fun vibe that Moschino has always represented as a brand. Versions of this piece are held at various fashion museums. The cream top features a gold metallic thread embroidery spelling out MOSCHINO COUTURE IN LOVE WE TRUST in a circle surrounding an embroidered speckled cow in black and gold with a bow in the national colors of Italy tied at one of its horns. The straight cut sleeveless design is unlined and closes with a rear zip and a hook and eye at the neck. It is tagged a vintage IT 44, D 40, GB 12, USA 10. Excellent vintage condition.

  • ISSEY MIYAKE S/S 1991 Documented Runway 'Dinosaur' Sleeves Black Silk Jacket
    By Issey Miyake
    Located in Munich, DE
    Important and rare documented Spring/Summer 1991 black 'Dinosaur' silk jacket by Issey Miyake as presented on the runway. The twin of this jacket walked the runway in several colours and fabrics. Versions of it are part of various fashion museums worldwide such as The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Powerhouse Collection of the MAAS Museum in Sydney. The linen model was photographed by renowned fashion photographer Irving Penn and is shown in the book "Irving Penn regards the work of Issey Miyake" published by Bulfinch. Please see the reference pictures and send us a note for a video sequence of the fashion show. Designed under the eye of Issey Miyake himself this stunning black silk jacket features a simple yet complex cut based on origami Japanese folding techniques. Both front and back are expertly pleated. Yet the star of this design are the long sleeves that are folded and pressed in such a way to create a zig zag line along the top of the sleeve which is reminiscent of a dinosaur's jagged back. The use of silk gazar is the perfect choice for this garment as the fabric combines qualities of delicacy with a gentle stiffness which is required to maintain the folded fabric form. The jacket is unlined and buttons up the center front. Labelled "Issey Miyake" and tagged a Japanese vintage size M. The jacket was purchased in 1991 by my couture client in Munich, Germany, and has not been on the market prior to this. Excellent vintage condition. Bust: 104 cm – 40.94" Waist: 82 cm – 32.28" Length: 53 cm – 20.87" Measurements for bust and waist are taken flat across from side seam to side seam and then DOUBLED.
