1990s Alberto Ferretti Butter Soft Detailed & Beaded Suede Jacket
This lovely Alberta Ferretti jacket still has its original retail price tag on it from the late 1990s. Even back then is was being sold for just over $3000 USD. It is made from a butter soft, light weight suede. The suede in this case has been treated more like a fabric then anything else and it has been both beaded and embellished. Silver metal tube beads are densely applied at the front of the jacket on either side of the opening. On all of the edges, running down the sleeves and defining the lower hem, are fused matte black metal pieces that form the designs that you see. This treatments has also been applied down the center of the back to emphasize the cut. The collar is neat and kept small and high and the shoulders, while structured, are kept soft with no padding. The sleeves are cut straight and long to be able to show off the embellishment on them. Through the body, the jacket nips in at the waist and then flares out slightly at the front. At the back, it has a little bit of extra flare created by an inverted pleat just below the waist. The suede gives it that soft, lived in vintage feel, but this is deliberate as its never been worn and the original tags are still attached. Excellent condition.
