From 00062019 'Midnight Stripe,' this satin cocoon jacket illustrates the dark, 50s womenswear influence that flowed through the collection. With a dramatic scalloped front and oversize shape across the back that tapers in to narrow tube sleeves, this piece of outerwear nods towards old boleros or shrugs that were cut cropped and curved at the hemline. This version has been updated for modern-day wear with a highly technical and luxurious combination of silver active satin, full viscose lining, and primaloft fill for warmth. Not to mention a wealth of utilitarian details, including invisible zippered chest pockets, layered snap front, and a floating-entry arm pocket on the wearer's left that looks as though an MA-1 sleeve pocket were scaled up and stripped down to its essence. The tailoring is immaculate, with the sharp, narrow curved sleeves emerging from the back panel through the use of multiple darts and panels. This piece is a sure statement yet slots into the Kostadinov universe perfectly--it's a new unisex and functional interpretation of a historical reference, demonstrating the designer's ability to bring the past into the future.
9.5/10 Condition, with no rips, stains, or tears. Made in Bulgaria
Fit Notes: The body is wide and can accomodate most, though the sleeve length would suit a small or medium best. Flexible sizing.
