Can you believe its original Missoni jacket from the 1970s? A rare find and a must have for any vintage lover. In a pretty pale green colour and traditional Missoni pattern. The wool fabric means the jacket is surprisingly trans-seasonal.
Fab fact: The House of Missoni was started in 1953 by Italian couple Ottavio and Rosita Missoni. Focusing on knitwear and geometric designs their new look was championed by legendary fashion editors Diana Vreeland and Anna Piaggi and the brand has been hugely successful ever since. In April 1967, they were invited to show at the Pitti Palace in Florence. Rosita told the models to remove their bras, supposedly because they were the wrong colour, and showed through the thin lamé blouses. The material subsequently became transparent under the lights and the model's nipples caused a sensation.
