80s Tux Style Jacket Nothing Matches Vintage Yvonne O'Gara

This vintage 1980s tuxedo style jacket features gorgeous fabrics in the "nothing matches" collage style so popular in 80s boutique clothing. Shoulders are padded with deepcut armholes. The lapels are wide at the shoulders and narrow down into the deep vee neckline that comes to the waist, where the jacket is more fitted. The jacket has a pair of bound handwarmer pockets.

Waist 36" 91.5

 FABRIC/COLORS:

I believe all fabrics are silk. There are four different prints, plus a solid black crepe for collar and lower sleeves and the jacket is lined in lightweight red tissue silk. The blue, teal and fuschia fabric are jaquard weave as well as print. The fuschia fabric has a hint of sparkle, and I cannot decide if the icy blue flower print is screen printed or not. Pockets are lined in whimsical cream with small red polka dots.
