#3362 - c. 1991 GIANNI VERSACE COUTURE, Made in Italy Bold, Bright, Silk Jacket! Remember Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat? Here's Versace's version in printed silk. I'm sure you have a pair of black pants and/or black short skirt in your closet (is there a woman alive who doesn't?)... that is all you will need. Unless, of course, you want to show off the even more amazing lining! It's just as bold as the outside and could actually be worn insideout if you want to flaunt the Gianni Versace Couture label prominently plastered on the left breast. Design of the jacket/coat is knee length, slightly fitted at the waist, silk printed with fanciful brackets, strapwork and other curvilinear forms, elaborate red rhinestone jeweled buttons,. There is one red cuff, one purple, and rope appliqued pocket flaps edging. Marked size 40, that's an American size 6. From Prestigious NY Couture Auction. Destined to be a classic. Near mint condition. A simple Versace Couture dress costs $1200 - $8000. I can't imagine what this cost new!!
SOLD - but on display in Museum Category for Research/Study
