GIANNI VERSACE Couture Spring 1994 Vintage Black Crinkled Safety Pin Jacket Size XS

The safety pin pieces from Spring 1994 belong without doubt to Gianni Versace's most iconic and recognizable designs. This rare vintage jacket from that collection is crafted from a deliberately crinkled black wool crêpe with sexy cut-outs on front and back that are adorned with a total of nine large gold- and silver-tone metal medusa head safety pins, plus two safety pins that embellish the back of the sleeves. The jacket features a strong sharp cut - fitted, elongated, with padded shoulders, a defined waist and front pockets - and closes with four beautiful medusa buttons in silver and black. No material tag, probably 100% wool, fully lined. Made in Italy. The epitome of a statement jacket and highly collectible.

Modeled on the runway by Veronica Webb. Reference photos available via Vogue Runway.
