Exceptional 1980s Oscar de la Renta Black Velvet & Metallic Gold Cord Applique Jacket

This one of the most gorgeous jackets from Oscar de la Renta I have had in the shop. It has this fabulous high glamour feel to it because of the gold cording that is applied extensively over its surface. It is made out of a beautiful inky black velvet. Just enough weight to hold the shape but it still light enough that it feels supple and soft once on. It has a simple cut and slips on to wear with a series of hook and eye that starts just above the waist and goes now to just above the hem. Define is high and neat with a simple color. Above the straight cut sleeves there is light padding for structure under a slightly puffed capped shoulder. The applique work on it is amazing. It combines a metallic gold cord that is set in an extensive and intricate pattern over the entire jacket. Mixed in with this are little gold dome studs that highlight the collar, run down the front and then circle the hem and each cuff. As good as it looks in the photos it is even better in real life. And I love that the appliqué work is as intricate on the sleeves and back as it is on the front. It is fabulous and looks like it has never been worn or worn very little. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a black silk. Hook & eye closures from the waist down. Light padding in each shoulder. Tagged a vintage OLDR 8. Very well made and it looks to have never been worn or worn very little
