Description
No it isn't but it sure as hell looks like it :-) This structured, boucle wool tweed jacket is by Iolion Creations. Made in France and an extremely well made example of haute couture fashion circa 1961. It has a gold-tone chain detail lining the bottom hem and secures with a chain link button under the collar. There are four pockets, each side featuring a faux top pocket and shallow flap pocket below. Polished brass buttons feature a lion’s head - a Parisian haute couture signature. The lightly tailored, boxy cut - designed to allow wearers to move more freely - is reminiscent of Gabrielle Chanel's haute couture designs throughout the 1950s and early 1960s. Fully-lined in red rayon, the stiff tonal trim along the central placket and collar features seven rows of pin-tuck stitching. This elegant jacket is in fresh, well-preserved vintage condition with no rubbing on the buttons or chains. There is no give to the fabric and it will best fit a size UK 10 or below. Please note, the label has been annotated by hand to read ‘Jolion Creations’.
