A rare prerequisite to the more common AW99 Astro Biker pieces, this AW97 high collar parka features many of the same sensibilities with its impeccable tailoring, unique use of materials, and flattering cuts.
Striking yet minimal, this piece was featured in numerous looks on the runway as a prominent centerpiece. The incredible angora outer is lined with an equally lush silky viscose liner. The pockets are lined as well, but completely concealed when closed. Other subtleties include a tapered darting above the pockets that's nearly invisible in the short fur, adding to the amazing silhouette. The interior pocket is hidden anatomically alongside the seam between the liner and the placket. Everything is then finished with completely concealed button closures throughout. Even the back slit can be secured or revealed with the same hidden buttons.
Made in Italy 80% Angora 20% Wool 9/10 condition, no flaws except for minor discoloration on the underside of the backside of collar as pictured
