Description
Thigh length jacket comprised of multi-coloured geometric fabric panels, long sleeves, a mandarin collar and diagonally placed metal snap fastenings at centre front. The jacket is constructed with two patch-worked V shaped panels at front and rear over a lack and white striped bodice which then narrows to a band at the hem, and features white shoulder epaulettes and matching white bands at cuffs. The jacket is decorated with metal snap fastenings at the collar, cuffs and centre front. There are two invisible pockets underneath the coloured flap at centre front. The jacket is fully lined.
