a little discovery of mine... i was browsing this vivienne westwood/malcolm mclaren website and found this piece from the 70s, and i think it might have been an inspiration for charles anastase... in the choice of materials as well as the design. vivienne westwood was one of the first designers i followed, so to know i'm wearing pieces inspired by her designs without even knowing it is quite special to me. geeking out.

the original, probably for men? i can picture adam ant wearing this

i think this is pre-2000 but i am not sure. it is a black wool jacket with the gold made in england label. the pattern and structure with respect to the sleeves are very complex. it is as if the sleeves' seams were rotated forward, and then the proportions of the sleeves were toyed with--it is very idiosyncratic for vivienne westwood. there is also the attached "vest" insert with 3 buttons which is very structured and fitted, in contrast with the rest of the piece.

the choker necklace (three strands of milk glass beads spaced with crystal-studded metal bones) is also westwood.

very interesting jacket...
the nklc is great too!



bordelique...
definitely interesting to compare the two...
though they both might have been originally inspired by a military uniform from WWI or WWII...
