AZZEDINE ALAÏA Jacket

 

 

Ultra-rare and fantastic Fall 1989 Azzedine Alaïa runway velvet knit jacket with oversized shawl collar.

 

Description

"The eighties belonged to Alaïa," blared The Independent in 1994, 14 years after the Paris-based Tunisian "burst" onto the scene with his first tough-chic ready-to-wear collection.

 

Azzedine Alaïa created these extravagant pieces for his Fall 1989 collection that were made of an innovative very soft and thick velvet knit that is about an inch thick and would become iconic later on. Incredibly comfortable to wear and warm!

 

Here we have a documented jacket from that Alaïa collection whose twin walked the runway as Look 56 styled with one of the designer's form-fitting knit dresses (please see pictures 10 and 11).

 

The completely unstructured ink-black velvet knit design features a cropped length to rear, long sleeves and an oversized shawl collar that can be used as a short hood. The open front is uniquely designed with elongated panels that can be styled a million ways. It seems quite heavy when you pick it up but feels surprisingly light once you have it on. The jacket is unlined and meant to be worn oversized. The cut will fit a variety of sizes. Tagged "ALAÏA PARIS MADE IN ITALY".

 

A wearable and collectible piece of fashion design!

 

Condition

This jacket is in mint condition.

MOSCHINO COUTURE Jacket

 

 

Extraordinarily rare Moschino Couture "Roman Centurion" Jacket from Franco Moschino's Spring/Summer 1989 "Cruise me Baby" collection.

 

Description

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 my shop and more to be listed gradually, comes direct from a German socialite and fashion collector so has not been on the market prior to this.

 

The exceptional and very rare Moschino Couture jacket is part of Franco Moschino's coveted Cruise Me Baby collection from Spring/Summer 1989 and I doubt you will see another anytime. It is a museum worthy piece of fashion history that will only increase in value.

 

When designing this jacket Franco Moschino obviously had the clothing of Roman Centurions in mind. It is an unworn wearable collectors piece and captures the fun vibe that Moschino has always represented as a brand. Franco Moschino once said in a 1994 interview with British GQ: “Funny clothes have to be extremely well made because that is where you find the chic." This design is a perfect example of his outstanding skills.

 

This elaborately decorated piece of couture pretends to comprise a creamy-white tunic with a cherry-red armour over it. In reality it is one piece that features a slightly fitted silhouette with a crew neck and short sleeves. I love the gathered shoulders with gold braid detailing that give the design just the right amount of femininity!

 

The upper part of the design shows hand-appliquéd brass tone metal ornaments in the form of small plates and round medallions. Each strip attached in two rows to the waistline is gold braided and decorated with a sculptural metal lion head.

 

The jacket is fairly heavy as to the metal ornaments but it sits well when on and does not actually feel heavy when worn. It is made from a high-quality acetate and rayon blend and closes with seven hand-set small fabric covered press buttons. Lined in a creme-white silky acetate and rayon mix. It is labeled "Moschino Couture! Cruise me Baby Made in Italy" and tagged a vintage IT 42, D 38, GB 10, USA 8.

 

Condition

This jacket is in excellent vintage condition. Appears unworn.

CLAUDE MONTANA Suit

 

 

Outstanding early 1990s Claude Montana white and black linen blend jacket and shorts suit with eye-catching piping detail.

 

Description

Claude Montana's power women with accentuated shoulders and sculpted silhouettes marked the 1980s and influenced many fashion talents of the next generation. He loved details and often combined sleek architectural simplicity with a strong statement element like the curved piping detail on the back of this jacket.

 

This fabulous early 1990s summer jacket and shorts suit comes direct from the former owner and has not been on the market prior to this.

 

It comprises a double-breasted white blazer and high waisted black shorts. The blazer features a contrasting black peaked lapel with low neckline, a nipped waist and long buttoned sleeves. The black curved piping on the back takes centre stage and attracts the whole attention to the waist.

 

The black high waisted shorts feature a slightly flared silhouette, side pockets and an attached belt that closes on the left side with a silver-toned metal buckle. Center zip closure.

 

Both pieces are tailored from a linen and viscose blend. The jacket is fully lined in a white cotton and viscose mix fabric. The shorts are unlined. Labeled "Montana Claude Montana Paris Made in Italy" and tagged a vintage size 42 (Italian) and 8 (USA).

 

Condition

This suit is in excellent vintage condition. According to the former owner it was never worn. Some minor marks on the jacket from storage that might come out with additional cleaning. Light patina to the belt buckle of the shorts.

YVES SAINT LAURENT Coat

 

 

Important and rare Yves Saint Laurent Fourrures Autumn-Winter 1976/77 Russian Collection Broadtail Fur & Mink Trim Coat

 

Description

Yves Saint Laurent was one of the first designers to pay homage to Russia and its traditional garments. His iconic and opulent Autumn-Winter 1976/1977 "Opéras – Ballets Russes" or so called "Russian Collection" included peasant ensembles and various Cossack-style coats made of luxurious textiles such as fur, chiffon, silk, velvet, and gold lamé. Laurent himself regarded this collection as one of his finest: “I don't know if this is my best collection. But it is my most beautiful collection.”

 

This Yves Saint Laurent Fourrures labeled coat is a well documented piece of fashion history and, as a key look of this collection, highly collectible. An investment piece that will continue to increase in value. Versions of it are part of The Met Museum and The Museum at FIT. See reference photos.

 

The breathtaking design is pure Yves Saint Laurent from that time and made from a high-quality genuine glossy broadtail fur in delicious shades of brown, from cinnamon to chocolate. The dark brown mink fur trim throughout including a half belt at the back emphasizes the beautiful lines and gives it that Anna Karenina vibe.

 

The bodice has a high neckline and long sleeves with mink fur trimmed cuffs. I love how the lower part of the coat is set into the waist seam with slight gathers along the top that flare out below the waist in a swing style. An extremely figure flattering cut! The coat closes at the center front with four beautiful and eye-catching tassel decorated dark brown Brandenburgs or passementerie frog closures and is fully lined in a matching rayon.

 

Condition

This coat is in excellent condition. Perhaps the slightest wear to the end of the tassels. Appears to have been worn very little if at all.

 

Size & Fit

Shoulders: 42 cm – 16.53"

Bust: 96 cm – 37.79"

Waist: 96 cm – 37.79"

Hips: open

Sleeve length: 66 cm – 25.98"

Length: 133 cm – 52.36" (from neck to hem)

 

Measurements are taken flat across from side seam to side seam and then DOUBLED for bust, waist and hips.

 

Corresponding Modern Size: M

MOSCHINO COUTURE Suit

 

 

Spectacular late 1980s Moschino Couture red wool needle motif and oversized buttons jacket and skirt suit.

 

Description

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 very sought after. This treasure, like several others that will be listed gradually comes direct from a German socialite and fashion collector so has not been on the market prior to this.

 

This is a late 1980s – most likely from 1989 – exceptional red wool jacket and skirt ensemble from Franco Moschino's Couture Collection that plays literally with the couture and – more specifically – sewing theme and puts you instantly into good humor. It captures the fun and charm vibe that Moschino has always represented as a brand and that collectors love.

 

The collarless cropped boxy cut jacket features a black thread trim, exaggerated black embroidered button holes and oversized MOSCHINO COUTURE marked buttons on the front. The back shows an oversized gold embroidered threaded needle that has a question mark detail at the top. The design has an open front with no closure, lightly padded shoulders and long sleeves.

 

The matching short high waisted pencil skirt has the black trim along the hem as well as black thread button holes and large buttons. It features a traditional high rise with a waistband and a concealed zip and button fastening at the left side.

 

Both pieces are made from light pure wool and are fully lined in silky cherry-red rayon. The jacket's label reads "MOSCHINO COUTURE!" and features the iconic golden heart. Tagged a vintage IT 42, D 38, GB 10, USA 8. The skirt's label has been cut off.

 

Condition

This exceptional and rare early 1990s Moschino Cheap and Chic vest plays with the Italian idiomatic phrase of having a clean slate and captures the fun vibe that Moschino has always represented as a brand.

 

The whimsical vest features two appliquéd hands at the front designed in the Italian tricolour (green, white and red), a gold-tone "MANI PULITE" (literally translated: clean hands) embroidery below the hands and a black and white striped back.

AZZEDINE ALAÏA Cardigan

 

 

Well documented collectible Azzedine ALAÏA Fall-Winter 1984-1985 knit cardigan with huge shawl collar.

 

Description

In 1984, at the Oscars de la Mode in Paris, Azzedine Alaïa won the award for the Best Designer of the Year and the Best French Collection. In the same year the twin of this cardigan walked the runway for the presentation of the Fall 1984 collection and was worn by super model Yasmin Le Bon for an editorial shot by Peter Lindbergh in Paris. The design became so iconic that Maison Alaïa re-issued the cardigan from the archives as the "Alaïa Edition 1985 Shawl Collar Jacket" for its Fall/Winter 2018 collection.

 

This rare and highly collectible cardigan from the original Fall-Winter 1984-85 collection features a full cropped cut with a nipped-in waist and an exaggerated shawl collar that can be worn as a short hood. The long batwing sleeves end in slightly tighter cuffs. Two flat pockets at the front and light shoulder pads. The design is made from densely knitted ribbed boiled wool and alpaca in a neutral ivory-white and closes with three metal buttons. Meant to be worn huge and oversized. Tagged a vintage Alaïa "M" but the oversized cut will make it fit a variety of sizes. A truly fantastic and museum worthy piece!

Description

This is one of Thierry Mugler's iconic sharply tailored skirt suits he is renowned for from the late 1980s / early 1990s. It encapsulates all that is unique in his designs: a fitted jacket with a structured cut, a wasp waist that hugs the hips and curved top stitches that follow the feminine forms, all together creating his signature super woman look.

CHANEL Haute Couture Suit

 

 

An absolutely stunning numbered Chanel Haute Couture jacket and skirt suit from Autumn/Winter 1971.

 

Description

This Chanel jacket and skirt suit is made from a soft black checked purplish blue bouclé wool. It is finished to Haute Couture standards and entirely done by hand.

 

The jacket has the classic, timeless box cut with the unique multi-panel construction Chanel is famous for, a pointed silk backed collar, bracelet length sleeves with a two button cuff, two lower front silk lined flap-style pockets and a half back belt. It buttons up the center front and is fully lined in matching blue silk that is stitiched in long vertical panels. The signature heavy gold chain runs along the inner hem for perfect drape. The original large black and white label has the registered couture number 42883.

 

The matching skirt is just below the knee with a slight flared cut, has a knitted waistband and is lined in matching blue silk as well. It closes in the back with a hidden hand set painted metal zip, a flat metal hook and eye at the waist and a tiny silk covered press button.

 

Designer

Coco (Gabrielle) Chanel (1883-1971) is famous for her timeless designs that are still popular today. She opened her first shop selling hats in Paris in 1910. In the 1920s she launched her first perfume, Chanel No. 5, and later in this decade the now legendary Chanel suits with boxy jackets and well-fitted skirts in pretty wools, tweeds and silks and the little black dress. A little more than a decade after her death, Karl Lagerfeld became her successor as head designer in 1983. Since then he continues the Chanel legacy.

This skirt suit is in excellent to mint vintage condition. It seems unworn.

YVES SAINT LAURENT Coat

 

 

Chic circa 1970s black cotton trench coat by YSL Saint Laurent rive gauche.

 

Description

In 1965 Yves Saint Laurent launched the trench coat as a feminine item stolen from menswear. He made it a recurring element of his ready-to-wear collection. Since then it became a classic wardrobe staple that goes with anything from casual to elegant. Think of Catherine Deneuve in 1967’s "Belle de Jour" in her Yves Saint Laurent black patent version that instantly tied it to a new level of sex appeal. Or Jackie Kennedy who paired it with an evening gown.

 

This chic and ever-versatile midi-length circa 1970s YSL Saint Laurent Rive Gauche black trench coat works all the timeless features, including a notched collar with a storm shield, two buttoned gun flaps, long raglan sleeves, adjustable belted waist, buckled cuffs, buttoned flap pockets, a vented back and a double-breasted button-front closure. It is crafted from a black mid-weight cotton, fully lined in cotton as well and labeled "SAINT LAURENT rive gauche PARIS, Made in France". The original model and care tag is still present. Comes with spare buttons. Marked a French vintage size 38.

 

Condition

This coat is in excellent vintage condition. Little wear on the buckles and the edge of the cuffs.

MOSCHINO COUTURE Suit

 

Well documented skirt suit by Moschino Couture from Spring/Summer 1989.

 

Description

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 very sought after. This treasure, like several others that will be listed gradually comes direct from a German socialite and fashion collector so has not been on the market prior to this.

 

This is an eye-catching skirt suit from Franco Moschino's Spring-Summer 1989 Couture Collection that puts you instantly into good humor. It captures the fun and charm vibe that Moschino has always represented as a brand.

 

I am happy to have found documentation of it with a Vogue editorial shot from March 1989 (see last picture) and a Fashion Channel Video sequence of the fashion show of that year.

 

The collarless cropped boxy cut jacket features an eye-catching pattern mix of black polka dots on an off-white backdrop and a vibrant multicolor floral print. The design has an open front with no closure, four real buttoned front patch pockets, shoulder pads and is decorated along both sides of the center front with six fabric covered buttons and four beautiful iridescent rhinestone adorned buttons. The long sleeves show each three of the rhinestone decorated buttons at the cuffs with real buttonholes.

 

The matching short high waisted pencil skirt features a waistband and two real patch pockets at the front. One closes with one of the fabric covered buttons, the other with one of the rhinestone adorned buttons. It closes with a button and a zip in the center back.

 

Both pieces are made from light pure wool and are fully lined in a cherry-red rayon/acetate blend. The jacket's label reads "MOSCHINO COUTURE!" and features the iconic golden heart. Tagged a vintage IT 42, D 38, GB 10, USA 8. The skirt's label has been cut off.

MOSCHINO COUTURE Jacket

 

 

Captivating c. 1992 Moschino Couture trimmed jacket with smiley face faux pearl buttons.

 

Description

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 very sought after. This treasure, like several others that will be listed gradually comes direct from a German socialite and fashion collector so has not been on the market prior to this.

 

A one-of-a-kind vintage c. 1992 MOSCHINO COUTURE! pink wool jacket with gold-rimmed faux pearl "smiley face" buttons. This design is part of the collection Franco Moschino did parodying the legendary Chanel jacket by using dramatic trimmings and detailing. It captures the fun and charm vibe that The House of Moschino has always represented as a brand.

 

The cropped jacket features a boxy silhouette with an open front, no collar, long sleeves, four faux front flap pockets and a black crocheted trim around the collar, down the front and around the pockets, cuffs and hem. The trim around the neckline is partly loose – starting from the shoulder seam to the beginning of the front – creating a trompe l'oeil effect of running around a – non-existent – collar. The icing on the cake are the witty Chanel-esque gold-rimmed faux pearl buttons featuring a smiley face on it. An all-black ensemble will look super chic with this fun design!

 

The design is fully lined in a pink rayon/acetate blend. The label reads "MOSCHINO COUTURE! Made in Italy". Tagged a vintage IT 44, D 40, GB 12, USA 10. Comes with two spare buttons. Please note that the pink colour is in person most likely as you see it on the last picture.

 

Condition

This jacket is in excellent vintage condition. Appears unworn. The crocheted trim down the front and around the front hem has been altered by the House of Moschino at the request of the customer. Originally they were loose and hanging down.

 

Size & Fit

Shoulders: 42 cm – 16.5" 

Bust: 99 cm – 39" (under the arms)

Waist: 94 cm – 37"

Sleeve length: 58 cm – 22.8" (measured from shoulder seam)

YVES SAINT LAURENT Coat

 

 

Signature wool and velvet coat by Yves Saint Laurent from the early 1980s.

 

Description

This is a fabulous mocha brown early 1980s vintage Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Cossack style coat. The design has a straight cut and is made from what appears to be a soft cashmere blend in a wonderful taupe hue that is a go-to neutral. It features a contrasting black elongated triangle velvet collar, long sleeves with wide double cuffs in black velvet as well, both underlaid and edged in the coat's taupe fabric, and two front slit pockets. The coat closes at the center front with four beautiful black Brandenburgs or passementerie frog closures and is fully lined in a matching rayon. It is labeled "Saint Laurent rive gauche" and marked a French vintage size 40. The generous cut will allow it to be worn by a variety of sizes.

Paisley Sequin & Bead Jacket

 

Stunning paisley design sequin and bead silk jacket from the 1990s.

 

Description

Heavily beaded and sequined multi color paisley design silk evening jacket from the 1990s. "It (paisley) has that flamboyant connotation, it’s a look that says ‘notice me’" – Dennis Nothdruft, Curator at Fashion and Textile Museum, London, UK.

 

A little excursion on the meaning of the paisley pattern: "From its ancient Persian and Indian origins with its hidden messages and mysterious symbolism, the iconic motif has had quite a journey. Its symbolic power has probably played a part. The original Persian droplet-like motif – the boteh or buta – is thought to have been a representation of a floral spray combined with a cypress tree, a Zoroastrian symbol of life and eternity. The seed-like shape is also thought to represent fertility, has connections with Hinduism, and also bears an intriguing resemblance to the famous yin-yang symbol. It is still a hugely popular motif in Iran and South and Central Asian countries and is woven using silver and gold threads on to silks and fine wools for weddings and other celebrations." – Lindsay Baker for BBC, 6 November 2017.

 

The jacket features a wonderfully detailed and very decorative design with its oversized paisley motifs framed by one to four rows of golden sequins that are filled with abstract motifs and surrounded by monochrome segments. Amazing color scheme of iridescent and sparkling sequins and beads in shades of azure, red, lilac and green. The design is framed by a row of golden sequins running around the collar, down the front, the sleeves and around the hem. It has a straight cut, closes with five hooks and eyes down the front and is fully lined in what appears to be black rayon. Labeled “Mode Exclusive Mehra München“ (Fashion Exclusive Mehra Munich, Germany" and marked size Large.

Extremely well done. Designed for a loose fit. Can easily be dressed up or down.

Designer

The house of Roberta di Camerino was founded by Giuliana Coen Camerino (1920-2002) in 1945 in Venice, Italy. The company's name is a combination of the name Roberta, taken from Giuliana Camerino's favourite song "Smoke gets in your eyes" and Camerino, her husband's surname. Giuliana Camerino was one of the first designers who created the idea of an easily recognizable status handbag. The neo-baroque style bags were produced of "Soprarizzo" velvet – originally used for furnishings – in the most beautiful and unusual colour combinations and clasps and studs created by the craftsmen of brass ornaments for gondolas. The result were truly revolutionary and unique bags. Already in 1956 Giuliana received the prestigious Neiman Marcus "Oscar of Fashion" Award. Further on the brand diversified its product range starting a clothing line characterized by high quality, simplicity and lightness. Trompe l'oeil prints of belts and buttons became Roberta di Camerino's signature designs. Her creations were loved by celebrities and royals all over the world, such as Grace Kelly, Princess Paola of Liegi, Elsa Maxwell and Isabella Rossellini.
