Men's Floral Velvet Blazer, 1970s
A rare vintage 1970s Ted Lapidus velvet blazer, with shoulders that have epaulettes, which is Lapidus' signature touch and wide lapels giving a typical 1970s look that is so current yet timeless. Looks great in both the day or adding an eccentric touch to a dinner ensemble. Incredible quality, French-made and fully canvassed in a brown velvet with an autumnal print throughout.
Lapidus started his career with an apprenticeship at Dior and celebrities from Bridgette Bardot and Alain Delon to John Lennon were huge fans of his designs.
