1980s Glossy Mink Trim Sequin John Anthony Silk Jacket

John Anthony launched his label in 1971 and during the seventies and into the eighties produced amazing pieces that were sleek and sexy. As the label progressed into the 80s it got more decadent and showy resulting in fabulous pieces like this one. This wonderful little cardigan is a true find. It is quite fantastic, very very well made and has beautiful detailing. The base is a deep burgundy silk that has a heavy application of beads and sequins, all hand applied and covering the entire surface. He then added glossy black mink cuffs and a front collar that curves around the neck and goes right down the front. I love the movie starlet glamorous fifties feel of it with its cropped cut and loose fit through the body. It has no closures and is lined in a fine silk so feels as luxurious on as it looks. It is such a decadent little piece and a great way to work a fabulous piece of the past into your wardrobe. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a hand set black silk. No closures at the front and I see no areas of missing beads. Light padding in each shoulder.
