Andre Courreges Documented Vinyl Crop Jacket in Buff, 1971 - 1972

About

Andre Courreges made cloth and wool versions of this cropped jacket in 1968 and repeated versions of them for his next few collections as they were immensely popular. For the 1971-72 collection he did them in vinyl and showed them over ribbed under garments - a play on ski wear. This one is done in a versatile and unusual the soft buff color that lands somewhere between a nude and blush. Courreges was fascinated with youth and his piece often reflect the same cut used in childen's wear. You can see that in this jacket with its funnel neck and cropped length. He was an early adapter in the use of vinyl, which would have been in the forefront of cutting edge textiles at the time. The use of it is an important milestone in both fashion history and in the career of Andres Courreges. The house's signature white snaps run down the front and the original Courreges logo sits on the left side. An iconic piece of fashion history that is very well documented. Excellent condition Lined with a logo embossed off-white rayon that is attached by a series of snaps all around the edges so it can be easily removed when the jacket is cleaned. The jacket closes at the front and cuffs with large white covered snaps. I see extremely minor pin-top sized areas of flaking to the vinyl in a very few teeny areas with some minor grubbiness to the vinyl and near the neckline inside. These are almost too minor to be mentioned but provided for accuracy. if you super size the logo photo you can see the areas near the logo. The vinyl was known to flake on these because of the type of vinyl used so it is still rated as excellent as the flaking is so very minor.
