Maison Fauve - Metropolis Jacket
About the Metropolis Jacket
This very elegant jacket isn't your average jacket. The key features are the double buttoning at the front, and the judiciously hidden pockets. As with many Maison Fauve patterns, there is a gorgeous (optional) pleat detail at the shoulder.
This jacket is as beautiful with jeans as it is with high-waisted pants, skirt or over a dress. Its applied 'stripes' are optional, leaving you the possibility to choose between boldness and purity.
For your Metropolis select jacquard, gabardine, denim, velvet, fine wool. A medium weight fabric of about 150/250 g/m2 and a slippery fabric for the lining such as our 100% cupro or viscose linings that are slippery and more breathable than polyester.
