Rare Original 1960s Courreges Orange Vinyl Jacket

Courreges did these amazing little faux leather jackets made from vinyl in the 1960s and then the company re-issued them in the early 80s. This is one of the much rarer originals in one of the best and most coveted of the colors - the brilliant orange! The cut is a play on the classic denim jacket. The faux vinyl leather would have been the very forefront in cutting edge textiles at the time and the use of it is an important milestone in both fashion history and in the career of Andres Courreges. It is striking and still chic and fashion forward. The house's signature white snaps close the front and the original Courreges logo sits on the left side. A great iconic piece that is highly collectible. It is in absolutely mint condition too which is really unusual as these tended to be worn to death. Excellent condition and appears to have never been worn.

Lined with the correct logo embossed matching orange rayon lining that snaps out for cleaning. The jacket closes at the front and cuffs with press snaps. I see no signs of cracking to the vinyl and it looks to have not been worn. Tagged a size 0
