Trying to find inspiration for my own collection and jacket. the first 2 images are jackets by Vivienne Westwood, circa 2000-01. above is a jacket and shirt by Comme des Garcons that i found intriguing also. I think all 3 play with the fundamental elements of the jacket but maintain a sense of classic elegance. Which leads me to the images below of jackets from the 1940's and 1950's. I also added a image of one the screen sirens of that era, though I've forgotten her name, as it has in a way informed my designs. I find that there is a beautiful fusion of feminine sensuality and assertion of strength, class, and elegance in the designs of that era, which i admire and would love to emulate in my own designs.
