Stunning 1970s Adolfo Pale Pink Beaded Pearl, Rhinestone & Gold Jacket

This is a beautiful and intricate jacket by Adolfo. 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 example of his work. Adolfo often did custom work for his clients who ranged from the Duchess of Windsor, to Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Gloria Vanderbilt and Nancy Reagan. He even won a Coty Award in 1969. I love his work and am very pleased to have this exceptional jacket in the shop today. It is made of a beautiful pale pink 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 gold thread that is woven through the pink base. He then had faux pearls scattered over the entire jacket. 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 heavy and dense finish of gold thread, more pearls and then colored rhinestones set in among that gold. I has a single hook at the neck. Excellent condition.

Unlined in a hand set black silk. It has one hook at the top of the neck. 100% wool
