Miu Miu, A/W 2001 Vintage Leather Moto Jacket with Epaulettes
The Miu Miu line was launched in 1998 and closed in 2008. Despite its insignificant commercial performance, unconventional design and playful takes on sartorial classics have made it a long-standing favourite among fashion enthusiasts.For her A/W 2001 collection Miuccia decided to present the collection exclusively to buyer only, making it one of the most illusive and rare.
Constructed out of a premium vintage leather, which is seemingly treated to wear with beautiful streaks of patina and distressing over time, only to get better with age. Using a moto-style shape and neck detail Miuccia decided to also add some minimal epaulettes to the shoulders, increasing the top heavy detail. We also see a zip closure and two front pockets to finish.
