1960s Blue Cord & Black Net Geoffrey Beene Evening Jacket

An amazing statement piece in black net lace with the most amazing three dimensional cord work that covers the entire jacket make this a virtual work of art. Beautiful curving twists of appliqued blue silk ribbon is worked through and around the underlying designs of the net lace underneath highlighting the design. I love the that it is left unlined which makes it very light but also allows for whatever you wear underneath to add another dimension and texture as it peeks through the lace. The cut is fairly straight and easy with just a hint of the waist and a gradually widens as it nears the hem. Each sleeve is cut slim and straight and are also heavily detailed with applique and cording. It closes over itself to close at the front with a double button and the edges are all left rounded and scalloped with more cording to define and highlight the beautiful shape. The hem of the top portion of the wrap over extends slightly down for a bit of drama and extra interest. It is a stunning example of the high attention paid to detail in this time period and real rarity! Excellent condition
