1989 MOSCHINO COUTURE Red I Love Venice Lion Appliquéd Jacket & Pant Suit

About the Item

Early Moschino pieces designed by Franco Moschino himself – often referred to as Italian fashion's "enfant terrible" – within the short period when he launched the House of Moschino in 1983 until he passed away in 1994 are sought after and highly collectible. This treasure, like several others that are already available in the shop comes direct from a German socialite and fashion collector so has not been on the market prior to this. Crafted in Italy, the exceptional and rare vintage Moschino Couture jacket and trousers suit is part of Franco Moschino's coveted Cruise Me Baby collection from 1989. When designing it Franco Moschino obviously had the Venetian flag in mind (see the last picture). The suit is a wearable collectors piece and a love letter to Venice and Italy which captures the fun vibe that Moschino has always represented as a brand. The cherry-red jacket has a cropped boxy shape that is accentuated with gold braiding. Attached decorated "tails" at the bottom are finished with long fringing of the same colour. Six decorative domed gold metal and fabric filigree buttons are set at the center front and close with a hooked chain running between them. The center back features the eye-catching appliquéd symbol of Venice, the winged lion with a halo around its head and holding a book below its paw with the sentence "I Love Venice" written in it. The jacket has lightly padded shoulders and is lined in a golden rayon. The matching high-rise slim trousers of the same colour have a tapered straight leg and are unlined. Both pieces are labeled "Moschino Couture! Made in Italy" and "Cruise me Baby" and tagged a vintage IT 44, D 40, GB 12, USA 10. Run smaller! Excellent condition. Unworn.
