vibrant colors detailed avant-garde jacket

Perfect for those of you of shorter stature or if you like short jackets in general - they are indispensable for so many different looks! This jacket combines just about all of the techniques used by the artist, from dyeing, painting (three different types) to overlay, overstitching, patchwork, embroidery, and more! The colors of the jacket are beautifully vibrant, and the matching bright blue distressed buttons look like they have been made specifically for it. Sleeves can be turned up if too long, or pulled up too. Wear it closed or buttoned-down. Lightweight, perfect for warmer months. Lots of different tanks available to go underneath, if you need any. Shown here on two heights - 5'5" and 5'2" so that you can see the fit on both. Product code: H0197

Hand wash.

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.
