Gianfranco Ferre silk jacket, 1990s
Gianfranco Ferre's education in architecture is apparent in the attention to form, structure, and balance found in his designs. His elegant yet practical clothing is always in style.
This stylish jacket of ivory satin crepe is totally lined with matching linen. The soft silk outside is luxurious. The crisp linen inside supports the shape and is cool on the skin. The inside is so beautifully finished that the jacket could be reversible if it were not for the label and closures.
Ferre's legendary attention to detail is evident. The jacket closes with self-bound buttonholes at the neckline and cuffs. The other front buttons are concealed with a placket. The top stitching of the seams, cuffs, and waistband is both decorative and functional. The dropped shoulders and batwing sleeves are comfortable and easy to wear.
The condition is excellent. The jacket shows gentle wear.
It measures: approximately 40" bust, 32" waist, 34" bottom circumference, 2 1/2" cuff, 30 1/2" from the neckline to the bottom of the cuff, and 22 1/2" length from shoulder to hem.
