Moschino Archive Gold Chain Leather Jacket JLO Spring 2010
Moschino, the Italian fashion house, is known for their whimsical and eccentric designs. Princess Diana memorably wore a red and black houndstooth suit by Moschino on three occasions in the 90’s, which later inspired a similar look worn by Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. With a desire to pay homage to some of Moschino’s most iconic looks, creative director Rossella Jardini reproduced a selection of original designs done to more modern proportions for Moschino’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection, made with special “Archivo Moschino” tags to mark the occasion.
From that collection, this black leather and gold chain jacket was named the ‘most coveted’ jacket that season. As seen on JLO for the February 2010 issue of Elle photographed by Tom Munro and on Daria Werbowy in the April 2010 issue of W Magazine photographed by Mario Sorrenti, this jacket takes luxury to another level.
Bust: 34 inches
Waist: 32 inches
Length: 19 inches
Made from a black leather frame and gilt chains, the jacket begins with a high round collar and long sleeves that reach a few inches above the wrist in a leather cuff. There is a band of leather at the shoulders, elbows, and around the middle of the jacket, emphasizing the natural lines of body while mirroring the leather hem of the jacket which reaches just above the waist.
The see-through nature of the gold chains adds a risqué element to the jacket, taking a classic silhouette and transforming it into something undeniably new and unexpected. Closing at the front placket with six large gold snap buttons, this jacket is a bold statement piece.
In excellent condition, this 2010 Moschino jacket is the perfect Rock and Roll chic addition to any wardrobe, and can easily be paired with a sheath dress or jeans and a tee for a more laid back look. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
