Here is an amazingly glamorous Victor Costa for Nahdree tailored suit jacket from the 1980s. Made from rich black velvet and trimmed with soft pink satin, it’s classy! The jacket has Princess seams both front and back. The sleeves are long with turned up pink satin cuffs that have an elegant curve as you can see from the photos. There are pads in the shoulders. A dramatic “V” neckline is finished with pink satin peak lapels. The front of the jacket closes with the most stunning buttons that have large round pink faceted glass stones surrounded by gold plated metal that has a basketweave pattern. These fabulous buttons are made to look as if they fasten in the buttonholes but they don’t actually do the fastening at all. On the inside under each of the faceted buttons there is a plain clear round plastic button and that is what goes in the buttonhole. At the waistline of this jacket there is a very slightly flared and gathered area that extends just over the hip area. The jacket is completely lined with black acetate material. This beautiful dressy vintage 80s Victor Costa jacket will bring sparkle and add bling to any fancy affair!
*****The black velvet shell that was used to photograph this jacket is not included with this sale. It was only used for display.*****
Condition: Very Good
The maker’s label that is sewn into the inner neckline has a red watery stain. This can be seen in the photo of the label but not when the jacket is being worn. There is also a slight pull in the satin material on the right lapel and I have provided a photo of this, too. This is a faintly noticeable issue. Otherwise, this jacket is in wonderful and clean condition.
