Jacket with back pleats. Double breasted jacket with panels on back bodice with pleats from the small of the back.
Fabric is a Linen cotton mix with high quality, tea dyed, cotton poplin lining and hand-carved and painted wood buttons.
This double-breasted jacket inspired was by a Russian wedding waistcoat discovered in a flea market. Initially I thought it was workwear.
It has one asymmetric patch pocket and a welt pocket and raw edge detailing. It is panelled to accentuate the waist.
A seemingly dressy garment becomes relaxed by the use of washed crumpled linen/cotton fabric.
Sula fabrics, fastenings and garments are made with the upmost care by expert craftspeople. This detail reveals the jewel-like beauty of the fabric colour tone and its soft handle, along with the meticulous hand-crafted button detailing.
