Bill Blass Couture Ostrich Feather Rainbow Bolero Jacket, 1970s

About the Item

American designer Bill Blass is acclaimed for his tailored women’s styles. He, alongside a few others, was one of the designers to codify the “American” look that incorporated modernist vision and maintenance of feminine flair. From his 1977 collection, this Blass bolero jacket is an incredibly rare collector’s piece! It is done with a flock of black ostrich feathers interspersed with plumes of blue, pink, orange, yellow and green. The bolero envelops the shoulders with a luxurious texture and creates a jovial volume with the flamboyant feathers jutting out across the silhouette. This Blass bolero makes for a dramatic evening upgrade being worn with a little black dress or a simple gown of virtually any color. Measurements Bust: Free Size Sleeve Length: 14 inches Total Length: 17 inches Fully lined in a black silk, this bolero is not for the timid. A bold, outspoken look that is filled with vintage charm, and contemporary gaiety. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself. - Follow us on Instagram @BASHAGOLD

  • Burberry Cropped Silver metallic Python Cape Spring 2013 Runway
    By Burberry
    Located in Boca Raton, FL
    Burberry is credited with inventing the trench coat and, now under the direction of Christopher Bailey, reinventing it—as perfectly exemplified in this cape tailored from gorgeous metallic python. The shiny silver topper is a brilliant riff on the storm flap, the utilitarian layer added onto the original trench coat design during WWI after officers complained rain was running down their shoulders and seeping into their clothes. The functional element endured until Bailey opted to make it into a fashionable one, pulling it off the jacket so you can mix and match it with just about anything—from outerwear to an acid green shift dress, which is how he introduced it in his spring 2013 runway show. A hook closure at the spread collar makes for easy on and off, while seaming at the front and back ensures an elegant silhouette that, yes, still could keep a spring shower from drizzling onto your ensemble. Measurements Size: 34 Length in front (from shoulder to bottom): 10 inches Length in back (from top of collar to bottom): 11.5 inches Shoulders: 15 inches This Burberry Prorsum cape from the spring 2013 collection is in excellent condition. It is crafted from shiny silver python. It features a spread collar with a hook closure at its base for easy on and off. It is tailored with princess seams at the front and raglan seams at the back for a streamlined silhouette that angles out over the shoulders. Its interior is finished with a black satin lining, gunmetal chain loop for hanging and a Burberry label...
