I love this colour of green! It is one of my favourite colours and when I found this jacket, I could not leave it there! The shawl collar, peplum and princess lines in the construction of the jacket gave it the extra details I look for when upcycling a garment.
The colour said “asian” to me and when I came across the mermaid pinup with an Asian feel to her, the deal was done! The addition of black Asian brocade with some of the green in its pattern and some black braid trim completed the colour story.
The mermaid pinup on the back of the jacket has been accented with freshwater pearls, which are reminiscent of bubbles, Japanese seed beads and glitter fabric paint to add sparkle to her tail and hair.
This jacket is elegant, unexpected and sexy and would be most fabulous with a pair of black pyjama style pants or a pair of jeans and killer boots!
Size is 8/10 and should be dry cleaned only, please.
