1994 Franco Moschino Ivory & Black Question Mark Faux Fur Cropped Jacket
The twin of this jacket is held in The Met Museum's permanent collection and I am very pleased to have one here as they are very hard to come by. This is is in perfect condition too making it that much more desirable. It is that sense of humour and drama is what defined the very best pieces from Moschino. The label had the ability to provoke and challenge all while making exceptional pieces of clothing. Francis Moschino launched his label in 1983 and was on the forefront of making environmentally sound choices long before it was common.
This jacket is exceptional and showcases everything collectors love in a Moschino piece. These have become very hard. The jacket is from his 'Fur For Fun' label and is of course a faux fur. It combines a shorter pile. soft ivory faux fur with the starkly black longer and thicker, glossy faux fur that forms the cuffs and collar. The collar is cleverly cut to form a question mark that wraps around the neck and down the full length of the other side. That longer side ends in a soft point and dangling below that is a flattened ball that forms the base of the question mark. The cut is loose and easy and cropped. Only the waist is fitted and everything above that very generous in size. It looks to have never been worn, or worn very little and is absolutely fabulous. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in an ivory silky satin. It closes with a fur hook just above the base of the question mark and slight wraps over the other side. Tagged a vintage US6, IT40, FR436. The loose cit will allow it to fit a variety of sizes. Note the color is person is a touch more ivory then how it photoed but no where near as dark as the Met reference photo (which looks to have been done in poor lighting)
