KATHARINE HAMNETT c. 1986 VOTE Studded Jeans Jacket One-Size

3800 EUR
“I am glad we studded it with VOTE and CND symbol, using our vote to bring peace is still the only way we will ever achieve it.” This is how Katharine Hamnett remembered her customised denim jacket that featured in the BLITZ Designer Denim Jacket Collection, 1986.

This oversized studded jeans jacket is an amazing piece of fashion history. It is made from light blue stonewashed denim with a very cool used look and is studded all-over with hundreds of silver-tone studs and large rhinestone studs - crystal clear, amber, red, blue and green  - this piece weighs a ton! The studs form a large "VOTE" lettering and peace symbol on front and back as well as a large studded peace sign patch on the left sleeve. The jacket features two breast pockets, two side pockets and buttoned cuffs. 100% cotton. Made in Italy.

The VOTE jacket has been on display at the V&A Museum, July 10-September 28, 1986.

Condition
Excellent. Some of the studs have left rusty marks on the denim beneath (see pictures).
