VINTAGE '80s LIAN CARLO NEIMAN MARCUS SCARLET EVENING JACKET ENCRUSTED WITH BLACK CHANTILLY LACE, SPARKLING SEQUINS & BEADING
A scarlet evening jacket adorned with Chantilly lace, sequins & beads by renowned designer Lian Carlo from Neiman Marcus. Lian Carlo is known for his gorgeous wedding gowns as well as other evening clothes and this brand is sold at only the finest & most upscale stores.
The color of this evening jacket is scarlet although it looks red or an orangey red which it is not. It was a hard color to photograph. Ornate Chantilly lace travels around the neckline & down the front of the jacket as well as around the ends of the sleeves. It is encrusted with sparkling black sequins & round black beads on top of the lace
The jacket is out of an expensive silky fabric & it is fully lined with a silky black lining. There are no closures on the jacket as it is meant to be worn open probably with a black silk shell under it.
The color combination is so striking and exquisite.
The perfect evening jacket to go with a skirt or over a black dress which will look spectacular for all of your holiday or Valentine’s Day events.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
