Fall 1988 Embroidered Oscar De La Renta

An amazing, over the top full on glitz and glamour jacket by Oscar De La Renta. The body of the jacket is a inky black velvet - so rich and luxurious looking and feeling. It has the most amazing heavily done, slightly 3D cord embroidery that has been said to have been done by Lesage. The peplum is exaggerated to the extreme so when buttoned it really stands out - more so then how it has been captured in the photos - there is actually a light stiffening material in it to keep the shape! Each cuff picks up that same embroidery and around the collar and down the front is also heavily embroidered! It really has a rich, Spanish feel to it and the embroidery is placed to perfectly nip in and create an hour glass feel. The Shoulders have padding which helps to further exaggerate the shape. Yellow sequins are hand set through the cording.† It just goes to show how good an eye Jane and Judy have when they send a piece like this! Stunning and in excellent condition.
