The French Jacket
I have always been interested and inspired by the past. Long ago before fashion I studied costume design, purely to learn fashion history & the origins of the clothing we adorn our bodies with.
I stumbled across this exquisite piece, which I call The French Jacket and it's been in the back of my mind ever since.
A true testament to tenderness and craftsmanship of creation. The lining is made up of tiny remnants of different salvaged fabrics, nothing wasted and carefully pieced together to create remarkable beauty.
For anyone looking for a great way to pass the time, The Met has an extensive online historical archive. Enjoy!
