~ "Monkey," inspired by the monkeys on the upholstery fabric sleeves and the appliques on the front. At center back, a '50s embroidered tea towel with a comical waiter is hermetically sealed under a tiger-print silk chiffon; the same chiffon protects vintage doilies at front yokes. Antique crocheted lady-gloves become epaulets at the shoulders; vintage lace adorns the pockets and undercollar, while a strip of fake fur streaks across the back yoke. This is a warm, multi-layered jacket, offering wit, charm and texture.
