Vivienne Westwood unique couture metallic padded saharien jacket, circa 1990s



Westwood has designed clothes outrageously flamboyant. They are beautiful, and often unconventional. This jacket echoes early twentieth century military wear. It shows the designer’s innovative take on traditional tailoring and use of material. This sculptural jacket is constructed from a holographic material made from spandex, metal and nylon. Featuring technically assured details like a molded bra, quilted shoulders and cutout appliqués that decorate the bust, pockets and sleeves. The jacket fully lined with a silk material, has a turn down collar, is single breasted, with vertical pockets on the bust and fake appliqué pockets on the lower part. Fastening is with a series of silver metal buttons embossed with the Westwood logo. This piece is a perfect example of Westwood’s eccentric fashion swagger.
