Vintage 70s Andre Courreges Space Age Design White Jacket S / M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 1970s era Andre Courreges space age design polyester and cotton blend white outerwear jacket. The jacket is quilted in horizontal bands on the interior - the quilting shows on the lapels when they are turned out. The jacket would provide a little warmth, but is not meant for very cold weather. It closes with two gold toned metal clasps - one attaches to the interior and one attaches at the lower exterior. The jacket has a narrow woven cotton collar. There is a slant pocket built into either side. The lapels can be arranged in a few different ways. Simple lines to this jacket, very clean look.
