There’s nothing shy or demure about this silk dupioni motorcycle jacket – not the vibrant purple color, nor the multicolored, jewel tone Riri zipper and trim, nor the black, jumbo sew-in snaps.

The self-drafted pattern is fully lined and features a semi-fitted silhouette; shoulder princess seams; upturned collar; overlapping lapels with snap detail; asymmetrical zipper closure with black, genuine Ultrasuede trim; shoulder princess seams; zipper trim at shoulder; long set-in sleeves; and thick custom made shoulder pads, sleeve header, and chest shields.

The jacket is interfaced with medium weight interfacing and fully lined with black Bemberg rayon. The purple silk dupioni is from Hancock’s, the Riri zipper is from ebay, and the jumbo snaps are from Dritz.
