Description

here’s a little ledthread trivia:

i’m a quarter filipina.

sometimes you can’t tell, sometimes you can.

i think, right now, with this lil jacket, you can:

designer surplus quilted acetate self. sort of quilty, beautiful body. reds/golds/blacks one side, whiter on the other side. designer surplus gold lam bias binding.

i built this jacket to be reversible, either side goes to the outside. there is also a thin wire in the collar binding, continuing all the way around the jacket body, to allow you to shape the collar at will. it’s pretty fricking marvelous.

S, M, L available, made to order, please allow 1-2 weeks to ship.
