1960s Tiziani Couture by Karl Lagerfeld Black and Ivory Needlepoint Mod Jacket


Remarkably, Karl Lagerfeld has not always been renowned. His early work for Italian label Tiziani Roma portends his legendary design career as exampled by this mod jacket. A skillful blend of op-art and handcraft, one can easily imagine this 1960s era jacket with a black skirt and toque hat. However, the contemporary details persuade even the keenest observer into thinking that it is fresh.

The lapels are expertly fashioned to maximize the rigid geometry of the black and white needlepoint pattern, leaving a solid outline of white along its edge. Beautifully handset sleeves provide the perfect balance of ease and confidence, and black buttons have been meticulously placed in alignment with the pattern. Providing a crisp but gentle fit, the jacket’s minimal style lines can be paired with anything from wide-leg trousers to skinny jeans. This jacket embodies Lagerfeld’s innate ability to transform the mundane into fashion envy.
