1987 Jean-Claude Jitrois Lesage 3D Floral Leather Jacket

About

The embroidery work on this butter soft, black leather jacket is exquisite. The work is all done by Lesage and it is mind boggling in person. I have tried to capture the dimension and 3D aspect of it with my camera but it just does not convey the pure depth and textural impact that you will get in person. An entire garden of flowers have been meticulously transplanted onto the surface of the jacket in their complete 3 dimensional glory. Little detailing of beads and sequins complete the illusion of a floral bouquet that has been added to the entire surface of the jacket. The blooms literally stand off the leather in places and the colors are deep and true. This is really a literal work of art and is like wearing a painting - all atop a chic slim fitting leather jacket. The cut is simple with no collar or closures and this is a deliberate choice in order to allow as much of a surface as possible to accommodate the craftsmanship of the floral design. It is simple but dramatic and a one off so is even that much more special. The level of work and masterful cut is wonderful The tag is numbered 26 967. Excellent condition. Fully lined in a black silk. No closures. Light padding inside the shoulders.
