1950s Jean Dessès Haute Couture Silk Mulberry Silk Swing Jacket



This gorgeous haute couture 1950s silk mulberry swing jacket is by Paris fashion house Jean Dessès and is of beautiful quality with a timelessly elegant aesthetic. In truly excellent, gently worn condition, this piece has aged well with no faults of any note. It features wide set three quarter length sleeves, a lapel collar and is designed to be worn open without fastenings. The rich toned silk flares out generously from the bust and from shoulders at the reverse of the jacket to create a full circle swing, with a central inwards facing pleat to direct the fluidity of movement between the shoulder blades. It is immaculately lined throughout in matching mulberry silk organza lining. Beautifully versatile, would best suit sizes US size 2-8, UK size 6-12.
