Beautiful 1960s Blue and Silver Knit Adolfo Knit Jacket
Adolfo started his career under Balenciaga and like Halston, was a successful milliner before opening his own fashion house. He became know for his Chanel inspired suiting and some of them are on par and perhaps even more relevant in feel then their inspirational equivalents of the time. This little jacket for example is wonderful. It is made of a beautiful sky blue woven boucle that has a rich, luxurious feel to it. The design that runs through the fabric is created by the use of a white and silver thread that is woven through the blue base strands. It is surprisingly light and almost more of a light evening sweater weight then that of a true blazer type jacket. The edges of the jacket have a heavier finish of the silver and white and it closes down the front with elaborate and wonderful rhinestone buttons - set to give just a glimpse of skin in between. A matching glittering crystal button sits on each cuff. Excellent condition.
Unlined and closes at the front with the buttons as shown.
