Formal simplicity meets material luxury in this stripped down Katharine Hamnett N2-B styled blouson, complete with the original reference's cropped body, ribbed waistband, and zip-open convertible hood. Here, the garment is rendered in a supple, lightly padded diaphanous silk with a luster that echoes both bomber satin nylon and silk scarves. The body and sleeves are cut with dramatic volume, lending an oversized blouson look that accentuates the textile's superfine drape. High neck collar is integrated into the hood, lending a full coverage look when worn up. Thanks to the artful combination of material and cut, this jacket wears both exceedingly comfortable and razor sharp. Like being enshrouded by a silk cocoon.
Finished with fine cotton rib at cuffs and waist, self silk hood adjustment cord, and Riri zippers at center front closure, two side entry waist pockets, and rear hood opening.
Made in the UK 8.5/10 Condition, with no rips, stains, or tears. Some slight wear around the zipper and very minor pilling at the ribbing.
Fit Notes: No tagged size, fits around a size M/L with wide, cropped body and oversized, balloon cut sleeves. Fits flexibly between XS-XL depending on desired fit thanks to the drape of the material and width of cut.
