Rare 1989 Fur & Silk Gianfranco Ferre Couture Jacket

My client knew Gianfranco Ferre, he was a personal friend, and he made this piece custom for her. Similar pieces were seen on the Haute Couture runway in the 1989 collection but here the silhouette was taken once step further and it was made even more dramatic and breathtaking through that amazing purple and gold silk brocade fabric and lush, rich hand dyed fox collar. The cut itself feels like it just stepped off the Haute Couture runway - the cropped length of the body combined with those huge puffed sleeves is heaven. The hood of the jacket is a Couture fantasy with its exaggerated cut and depth. It can be worn slung low on the back, up in a dramatic framing of the face, or pulled more up and around the shoulders to create an almost shawl feel. Finally for that perfect over the top finish the hood has an embellishment of a custom Lesage silk and metallic embroidery. Truly spectacular and a one of a kind piece that no one else in the world will own. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Both the inner and exterior of the piece is the same silk and gold thread brocade fabric. The fur is hand dyed fox and the embroidery work on the hood and back is Lesage. No closures

Sleeves: approx 14"
Shoulders: approx 15.5" on the interior but they sit off shoulder when on so it could almost be considered to have no set seams at the shoulders.
Bust: approx 18" flat across from side seam to side seam but with the same caveat as above for the shoulder measurements
Waist: open
Length: 11" from top of bodice to waist

Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-LRG
