Wonderful 1980s Hanae Mori Vibrant Floral Print Silk Crepe Swing or Tent Jacket

Hanae was the first woman of Japanese descent to have presented on the Paris and New York runways and the first Asian woman to be admitted as an official Haute Couture house to La Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Her work is exceptional. Hanae Mori excelled at these beautiful prints and when I find pieces with one of her floral prints on it I am very happy. This jacket is a great way to easily add a little vintage to your wardrobe.

This is a jacket that you can just slip on over just about anything for a pretty pop of color. It’s made from a black silk crepe that has a bit of texture running over it. The fabric has a slight bit of weight to it. It still light and easy to wear but has just enough weight and substance to drape and fall beautifully once on the body. The base colour is an inky black and then it has those stunningly beautiful flowers scattered over its entire surface.The cut is easy and simple. The silhouette lies somewhere between a swing coat and  smocked tent coat. It falls from the yoked shoulders and the way that it is gathered into the shoulder is what lets if fall in those soft rounded drapings. The sleeves are cut wide to poof above the buttoned cuffs. There is an attached tie at the neck that extends out from the collar. You can just loop it as I have done for the ties to hang long or you can tie it into a pretty bow. There is one single button at the neck and then it's open under that. You could also belt this for a completely different feel. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a black chiffon through the body and the sleeves are unlined. It closes with a snap at the top of the neck and there are two fabric covered buttons on each cuff. The tie at the neck is attached and extends out from the collar. The open fit through the body should allow it to fit a range of sizes

Bust: to 22" flat across from side seam to side seam and opeing to abut 26" + by the hem
Length: 27" from neck to hem
