Bonnie Cashin Sills & Co.
1970-71 F/W Documented Suede Parabola Twist Lock Jacket
This Bonnie Cashin for Sills & Co. collared jacket is from her 1970-1971 F/W collection. It is an iconic piece from the inventive American designer, featured in a 1970 editorial and currently held in The Met's permanent collection. It was made of a tan unlined suede in a parabola cut, doing up the front with three of Cashin's signature twist locks.
The suede does show some wear, mainly on the back of the arms and at the cuffs. There is also some patina to the twist locks. Please zoom in on the photos for a complete understanding. The suede remains supple and the jacket is overall in good condition.
