This is one of four one-of-a-kind leather jackets inspired by icons featured in the documentary THE TIMES OF BILL CUNNINGHAM.
Known for her snappy witticisms that would translate well to the 140-character limit of a tweet, Diana Vreeland was the all-knowing arbiter elegantiarum and editrix who has been deified by André Leon Talley. She was a product of her time. Born in 1903 to a wealthy British-American family, she was a Studio 54 devotee later in life, but clung to a turn-of-the-century vision of the world. She came of age in the Roaring Twenties and interwar period, decades before critical conversations about race and representation sparked by the Civil Rights Movement. Her rose-colored vision of world was reflected in the editorials that she published as the editor-in-chief of Vogue from 1963 to 1971. She was inspired by flights of fantasy, opulence and exoticism—problematic or unproblematic.
Our friend and Seaport neighbor Christian Benner has taken the traditional black leather jacket and spun it into a tribute to Diana. Witty, brash and direct, the jacket features many of her quotes across the front and back.
A true one-of-a kind statement piece; the jacket is a MEDIUM.
