This is a spectacular classic cut beaded and sequinned jacket from the 1990s. The label, NITELINE was the creation of DELLA ROUFOGALI who moved to New York from Greece after her career there as a top model. And she specialised in excessive and opulent PM wear creations, of which this jacket example certainly is.
The red silk shell has been meticulously beaded and sequinned in a design of ornamental patchwork in jewelled luscious colourings. And there is a cubist chain border of black and red beads. The inside lining is red satin. Fasteners are discretely fitted hooks and eyes.
Condition is very good indeed, with only very minor losses to a very few beads here and there. The silk is unblemished and pure in colour. There are no losses to hooks and eye fasteners.
Label has date 1994 and composition … shell 100%silk, lining 100%polyester.
