This desirable late 1980s/ early 1990s black suede bolero style jacket with multi coloured beaded trim is by luxury leather designer Jean Claude Jitrois who's work is synonymous with intricately embellished leatherwear of exceptional quality. This piece is a superb example of his work, and features exquisite Maasai tribal-style beaded trim in vibrant blues, greens and yellows on the cuffs and centre front. Long sleeved and collarless with a curved hemline, the jacket is designed to be worn open, so has no fastenings. It is beautifully finished on the interior and fully lined in branded silk, with an embossed leather label. In impeccable vintage condition, this super rare and collectable piece would best suit a US size 8, UK size 12.
