1979 Claude Montana Fringed Leather Jacket

Butter soft leather with amazing and dramatic fringe combine with intricate embroidery on this iconic Claude Montana piece! We are seeing a resurgence of all things fringed this season and it is pieces like this that are influencing that! Wide padded shoulders that are embroidered create that strong shape. It narrows down to a wasp waist and crosses and snaps down the front. The sleeves follow this same tapered shape as they reach the cuffs. The back is where all the drama lies - fringes extend from either side of the beautiful embroidery at the back and down each arm. This creates movement and the effect when on is just fabulous! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Fully lined in a black silky rayon and closes with snaps at the front, set angled to follow the seam. Two pockets on either side of the front as shown. Note that the mannequin is a 4-6 and it is not pinned on her so a smaller girl could wear this and just have that over-sized feel.

Sleeves: 22"
Shoulders: 18" meant to drop
Bust: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 14" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 21" from neck to back hem, 24" to point at front
