c.1960-63 Jean Patou Beaded & Sequin Black Velvet Jacket

I am almost certain this is Karl Lagerfeld for Jean Patou. The design on it is very reminiscent of some of his later work at Chloe and even work for Chanel now. That would date it to 1960-1963. It is a gorgeous little piece that has crisp, tight lines and is quite beautiful. The base of the jacket is a cotton velvet that gives it a deep matte black finish. Onto this is that incredible design. Gold glass tube beads are hand placed into vertical lines all the way around the jacket and on each sleeve. More of these tube beads edge the double row of tightly spaced sequins that run around the hem and and up and around the neckline. Each cuff has that same double row and I live that one row is done in an iridescent gold and the other in a pewter toned silver. It appears to have never been worn, or worn very little and is a real little beauty. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a black silk that is hand set. It closes with one hook and eye at the base of the V at the front.
