Bringing together two hits from British fashion from across the century that separated them, the Lace-Up Ruffled Jacket combines the lines of 60's British modern with the ruffles and corset lace of the Victorian era. The front presents a sleek line with a four button closure, notch lapel and sleeve buckles. The back features ruffles layered to the hem, an element that gave Victorian fashions some of their most graceful lines. And the flattering shape is explained by one other Victorian addition: a small corset tie to bring the waist in at just the right point. Choosing the best features from the past, this jacket sets a new bar for modern fashion.
