Surrealist Inspired 3-D Winged Insect Beaded Cocktail Jacket by Karl Lagerfeld 1980s
*RARE* and iconic Karl Lagerfeld late 1980s cocktail suit jacket with amazing beaded 3-D winged insects! Beaded button accents at waist. Jacket has shawl collar with open shoulders, attached "vest" give the illusion of being layered. Peaked cuffs (missing buttons), one beaded insect on center of back of shawl collar. Beadning likely by the esteemed House of Lesage. This is part of a set (I've sold the jacket with it's skirt years ago), very rarely does this one come up! Museum worthy to be sure.
