1980s Patrick Kelly Leopard Print Sleeping Blanket Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Kelly only designed for a 5 year time period but his designs still have an impact now. His early death at the age of 35 was a true loss and one has to wonder what greatness would have lay ahead of him had he had the chance to continue perfecting his craft. I love when I find his pieces and this coat is rather exceptional. He threw a leopard print into several of his collections and it became a bit of a signature. This coat is a fabulous piece whose print acts like a neutral in that you can pair it with pretty much anything and any color. It has that tremendous volume that you look for in a eighties piece and the fabric is like a soft t-shirt fabric blanket that has been quilted. This then slips on with no closures and tops absolutely anything you want to put underneath. The sleeves are cut extra long so that you can roll them and show off the black satin lining as I have done, or leave them long for more of a statement look. It is quite fabulous. Excellent condition
