$245.00 USD



  • Karakul Lamb
  • Satin
  • Mink Fur
This stunning and iconic short jacket a la Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn is in excellent vintage condition. The body of the jacket is Karakul lamb and it bears a beautiful sheen; the lamb hide forms gorgeous swirling patterns, especially down the back (see photo #8 which has been lightened.) Please be sure to note the luxuriant, supple 5" wide black fox fur collar which can be worn as a ring collar or flat: when worn as a ring, closure is via a furrier's hook and eye; when worn flat, the gorgeous 1" round button with its embedded iridescent crystals is on display and the collar comes to a point on each end. Note, too, the iconic, 8" wide belled 3/4 sleeves. There is a 4" long slit pocket on either side (I turned it nearly inside out in photo #10.) The interior is lined in black silky satin.

Approximate measurements:
shoulder to shoulder: 18"
arm pit to arm pit: 22"
sleeve length: 17"
back length: 22 1/2"

What a wonderful example of 1960s glam style at its best! This jacket would certainly enhance and/or be the focal point of your vintage or contemporary ensemble.
