We are very lucky to have this amazing piece of fashion history in store. Bought from a Kerry Taylor Auction this blue, late 60′s , velvet men’s jacket is by the label Mr. Fish, designed by Michael Fish.
Described as an “important contributor” to the 1960′s men’s ‘Peacock Revolution’ by The Victoria & Albert Museum, Fish was said to be inspired by dandies of time, particularly Christopher Gibbs, a socialite, Antique Dealer and apparently the inspiration for Mike Myers’ costumes in the Austin Powers series of movies.
Our beautiful jacket was also recently featured in Kerry Taylor’s book Vintage Fashion and Couture: From Poiret to McQueen (available here). This beautiful book is full of photographs and information of some of the worlds biggest designers and features a style icon for each decade. Totally worth a read for anyone into vintage.
