mixed fabrics cutout back mostly black drapey jacket

This is both fun and a great staple - the jacket has a wonderful drape, featuring various fabrics like silk, European linen, hand-woven silk and crisp Egyptian cotton, with knit silk and other natural fabrics for accents, and it is a perfect oversized piece as well as a true-to-size jacket. Mostly black, it has a few highlights in complimentary colors. One of the fun features is a cut-out sculptural construction in back - a great way to give it an extra dimension and also to vary the look by varying different colors underneath. Hand-painted vintage buttons completes the look. Product code: B5008

Hand wash or dry clean.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.
  • Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.
