1988 Bob Mackie Baby Blue Silk "Domino" Jacket

If the photo of this jacket caused a memory to be triggered it is probably because you saw the long, black version of this coat worn by Shalom Harlow at the 2009 Met Gala "Model as Muse". This version, has an equally prestigious pedigree as it was ordered and made by Bob Mackie for her to wear to the Academy Awards in 1988. It was carefully stored after that event and is now ready for its next chapter. While the full length version has a definite high drama factor, this length is far more versatile and the baby blue is absolutely exquisite and will suit most skin tones and act as a soft pop of color against most others. It is made from sculpted ice blue silk taffeta with the most dramatic and large puffed sleeves and shawl collar. The cut is open and generous so will fit all sizes and almost verges on a cape with sleeves. The ruffled edges are all lined in horsehair to give them volume and shape. It is absolutely wonderful in every aspect. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in the same silk with a open front that has no closures. Made to demi-couture standards. The open cut will allow it to fit almost any size.

Sleeves: approx 15" from the drop shoulder
Shoulders: 19.5"
Bust - Hips: Open
Length: 25" from inner seam at the neck to bottom

Modern Sizing Equivalent: OSFA

Item# S719
