Detail: Vintage John Galliano 1980s matador cropped / bolero jacket produced in exquisite black linen - London label, so pre Givenchy and Dior in Paris. From 1993, Galliano's brand was produced in Paris, so any piece with the "London Made In Britain" label is now considered extremely rare and collectable. During his London days, John Galliano produced limited runs per style.

This piece illustrates Galliano's early genius with intricate tailoring techniques deployed in the 1900s. The cutting pattern for the jacket would have been complex. The jacket consists of two layers. The first is a waistcoat, visible to the front with braided rope and button fastening. The waistcoat is attached to the collar seam of the outer layer which, drapes in much the same way as an Edwardian caplet. Fluted three quarter length sleeves with turned up cuffs. The architecture of this piece is really quite extraordinary! Unique and highly collectable.
