vintage leather vest with back patch- M
This embellished vintage Remy Leather vest is exceptionally decadent in auburn leather. Reminiscent of a motorcycle vest this piece involves minimal stitching into the leather highlights the original white leather "wings" on the front. The back pelvis patch is sewn with couching embroidery incorporating reflective yarn and rope. Intricately worked, the lines of the reflection bring light and movement day or night.
This piece was a healing one for me to make as I was hit on my hip by a car while biking. I enjoy incorporating anatomical elements into my garments to remind cars that we are mere mortals made up of muscle, bones and organs under our clothing. Let this vest bring shine and visibility to your ride!
