The Lily Jacket

SOLD

The Lily Jacket is an absolutely incredible 1970s-1980s vintage sequinned jacket that can easily be worn as a boxy blazer dress (for petite sizes) or an oversized sequined top. This jacket can also be a unisex piece, worn by small-medium sized men. This jacket is rich in the 1970s rock and roll aesthetic with flames, geometric shapes and out-of-this-world details across the shoulders. The most intriguing element of this piece is the “S.J.M Concert” label attached to the lining, which clearly reads “Lily Allen, Empire, 28-4-2014” which indicates that this jacket was part of famous British singer Lily Allen’s one-off headline show at the Empire Shepherds Bush. Although we cannot find any photographic evidence that she wore the piece, it firmly cements this piece in musical fashion history.

The Lily Jacket is in EXCELLENT to VERY GOOD vintage condition. All of the embellishments are immaculate, with a few that appear to have disappeared with time, but this is hardly noticeable. The “JB Fashions” label is also coming away from its seams, which shows that it was clearly loved and worn by its owners. For those with experienced sewing skills, you can reattach the label, however, we have left it as it is because it doesn’t affect the wearability of the garment and we are tentative about interrupting the exquisite sequins and bead-work. The jacket has hook and eye fastenings up the front, so you can easily turn this piece into a top or even a dress (as shown in the studio shots!). The “S.J.M” concert label is firmly intact, perfect for those who are also buying this as a collectable.
