Rare Original 1960s Nude Color Courreges Jacket

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Courreges did these amazing little faux leather jackets made from vinyl in the 1960s and then the company re-issued them in the early 80s. This is one of the much rarer originals in one of the best and least seen of the colors - the soft blush nude. The cut is a play on the classic denim jacket. The faux vinyl leather would have been the very forefront in cutting edge textiles at the time and the use of it is an important milestone in both fashion history and in the career of Andres Courreges. It is striking and still chic and fashion forward. The house's signature white snaps close the front and the original Courreges logo sits on the left side. A great iconic piece that is highly collectible. Excellent condition

Lined with the correct logo embossed off white rayon lining that snaps out for cleaning. The jacket closes at the front and cuffs with press 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. Priced accordingly. Tagged a size B
