1980s Wild Yellow & Grey Top & Cape

If you are looking for a truly unique and unusual piece this is it! Made of a slightly puffed parachute silk it is hard to even describe! The top has a high neck and square cut body with a pointed hem. The sleeves are wide and full and they are also cut so that the outer edge ends in a point and the inner seam is left open proposal. Over this is a rounded, backed "cape" that slips on and acts as a giant collar over the top. You can wear it with or without. There are no labels but it has that feel of a Kansai or some other avant garde designer. There is no way this is not a piece that was once labeled! It is amazing! Excellent, appears unworn condition
