    Vintage Inspirations: Coat of Many Colors


    Freshen up those winter basics this year with a bold statement coat! This season, designers are featuring patchworked, multi-textured brightly ornamented coats. Christian Dior, Dolce and Gabbana, and Prada love this instant mood lifting trend for 2021. Don't candy coat it, put on your patchwork pieces, multi-hued textiles, and ikat fabrics. Button up in brightly colored coats, jackets and wraps.

    This "nothing matches" tuxedo style cropped jacket is also 1980s, from Yvonne O'Gara. Her company specialized in vest and jackets made from vintage kimonos. Back view:

    And in my prep pile for listing , an Asian inspired fit & flare jacket designed by Lois Russell, also most likely 80s. The fabric is gorgeous, and includes scattered silver or gold metallic thread overlay. It may also have been sourced from an antique kimono. Here's a closeup
