Come Dine With Me

Own this iconic, vintage Moschino Couture "Dinner Jacket" from the 1989 "Show Off" A/W Collection

In collaboration with Isabella's Wardrobe, Glasgow.

Vintage Moschino Couture doesn't come round often!  This humorous play on the classic "Dinner Jacket" is one of the most iconic pieces from the 1989 fall "Show Off" collection.  In stock now at Isabella's Wardrobe on Crow Rd in Glasgow's west end, this is a rare chance to own a cultural icon of the 80s - an era known for outrageous fashion and decadence, and one that's being revisited over and over by today's designers.

How to wear it

This statement piece really speaks for itself, so it doesn't need a lot of complicated styling.  Indeed, I think less is more with a culturally iconic piece of vintage fashion history, so all the hard work of styling a 'look' is done for you! 

Pair with classic, black jeans or leather leggings and a simple black sweater.  Perhaps add a gold purse or heel.

Modern day armour!

The 'Military' look is a perennial fashion trend - in other words, it never dates!  At first glance, the jacket appears to be a military-style uniform, then you realise it's actually modern-day armour, in the form of cutlery!  En garde: Ladies lunching!


Go for gold!

Ok, so I couldn't resist styling another look - a not-so-simple take on classic vintage!  Clearly this look is for after dark, and adds a bit of sparkle.  After all, the Moschino brand is all about humour, fun and celebrating fashion's fabulosity!  I couldn't agree more!




Soldier for a day in my own private sentry box!
