This fabric - ‘Lady Kristina’ was based on a series of exquisite hand painted artworks created for Liberty in the 1920s and ’30s. These tree of life designs were used for various textiles including cushions, throws and kimonos. The design was printed for the Chesham Cabinet furnishing collection in 2016, which was inspired by doll and cabinet houses. This print was chosen to represent the cinema room, somewhere to chill out and watch iconic dramas amidst chinoiserie influenced, elegant and traditional florals. Acting royalty Sir Roger Moore was the artist behind the selection of this remarkable design from the archive.
The jacket is lined to the rear and down the sleeves with a charcoal grey dragonfly jacquard. The lower front lining is 58% polyester, 48% viscose in a radiant sage or eau-de-Nil. It features a specially designed blue tit lapel pin. 4 pockets inside, 3 to the left (one for a pen), one on the right and the exterior pockets are slanted flap. There are two vents to the rear. Four waterfall buttons on the sleeve, the bottom one sewn in contrast. Slim fit, SB2 peak lapel, 2mm laboriously stitched AMF on OBW, collar, lapels, front and flaps.
