S/S 1990 Thierry Mugler Rainbow Leather Jacket

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Rarest ever rainbow leather jacket by Thierry Mugler from his S/S 1990 collection. Another version of this jacket, not in leather, is currently being held by the Kyoto Museum in Japan. The dress from this collection was also famously worn on Katy Perry's album cover for Prismatic. This jacket is an absolute must for any devotee of Mugler. This piece is beautifully cut and features a cinched wasp waist and exaggerated shoulder. Zippers on both cuffs.

Due to the price of this jacket, it has been inspected more closely than most of our other items, and we have listed things that would otherwise be too minor to mention. There is some wrinkling in the leather, especially under the armpits, around the waist and near the ends of the sleeves. The light blue and green sections seem to have suffered this more than any of the other colours. You can see some of this in our photos. Places that aren't in motion as much, like the back, show much less wrinkling. For the most part the colours are very even but if you look extremely closely you can see some slight variations on the light green section. This is so subtle that it's hardly visible in our photos. On the leather that covers the zips, you can see impressions from the zip. The cuff zips are less affected by this, no doubt due to them being used less, but none of this would be visible during normal wear. The decorative star/cross zip puller has an extra hole drilled in it. The top hole is still usable, as you can see form our photos but it is damaged and may not be secure when the puller is in this position (presumably this is why the hole on the bottom was added). Apart from this the jacket is in very good condition. There is no obvious damage to the leather, all stitching is intact the colours are very bright and strong overall. A few very subtle marks can be seen in various places but again you have to look closely to see them. The lining is in excellent condition.
