1980s Lachasse couture forest green crepe day jacket - Large Extra large
A chic day jacket from couture UK fashion house Lachasse, one of London's longest running couturiers, in a high quality deep green fine crepe. I acquired this piece along with a blouse, clearly both tailor made for the same client, and whereas both reflecting some 1940s influence I've placed the jacket in the 1980s; Lachasse customers often stayed loyal to the company and had their garments made throughout their life so I like to think these belonged to a stylish woman who couldn't let go of that wonderful '40s aesthetic!
Only gently fitted, with classic V neck without collar, and button fastening with handworked buttonholes; one of many high end finishing details indicative of the label's quality. A binding between lining and crepe has been cut from contrast silk which is printed with green flowers!
