Vintage 1970s Fiorucci Ski Jacket Made in Italy Size M Rare
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage ski jacket made in Italy for Fiorucci. Fiorucci was founded by Elio Fiorucci in 1967, when he established a store in Milan, importing Carnaby Street fashion by Ossie Clark and Zandra Rhodes and introducing it to the Italian market. He established his own manufacturing in 1970 and in 1976, he opened a store in New York that became known as “daytime Studio 54”, attracting celebrities such as Andy Warhol, Cher, Jackie Onassis, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Gloria Vanderbilt and a young Madonna.
This jacket is made of poly filled nylon, has a Mongolian lamb wool collar, and has wide banding/striping in white, yellow and orange against a dark brown background. It has a large tooth nylon front closure and similar nylon closures for either vertical side pocket. It is made in a shorter style with accented waistline.
Label: Fiorucci with the two Angel logo. The content label reads “Made in Italy”.
Sizing: The size label indicates M for medium, but please rely on the following measurements for fit (please measure your body or a similar garment that you might own for comparison):
Shoulders: 16 1/2” across, from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves 23 1/2” from the shoulder/sleeve seam
Bust: 38” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 34” around
Bottom: 44” around
Overall length: 25", measured flat,
Condition: It has a couple of issues - the pull is missing from the front zipper and replaced with a paper clip. It works, but you might want to install a proper replacement pull (see second to last photo). The other issue is a tiny hole to the upper back of the left sleeve, just above the white stripe (see last close-up photo). It is very small, measuring 1/16” by 1/8”, should be easy to sew/repair. The jacket would benefit from a dry cleaning, although it is usable as is.
Despite the small problems, this is a rare piece by an iconic label - nice addition to a vintage collection!
