This desirable tawny lamb skin jacket with laser cut detail is by French designer Alaïa and is in superb vintage condition. A documented runway piece from his spring / summer 1989 collection, Alaïa established his ready to wear label in 1980 having previously worked at Mugler, Guy Laroche and Dior. One of his early pieces, this jacket is a classic 80s design featuring batwing sleeves, open lapel, metal buttons and a tight fitting waist in contrast with the casual, loose fitting style overall. The lambskin overlay is velvet soft, and the ornamental eyelets that create the surface design reveal the buttermilk toned sateen underlay which illuminates the laser cut patterns. This is a wonderfully adaptable piece and could be paired with a long skirt or jeans. It is labelled a French size 42 but runs much smaller and will fit up to UK size 10 or US size 6.
