Will Ship To: Anywhere
Lilly Pulitzer clothing was founded in 1959 by the socialite Lilly Pulitzer, who had originally designed brightly patterned fabrics to hide the juices stains from working on her hobby orange juice stand located on her orange grove estates in Palm Beach. Her signature clothing became wildly successful among her fellow jet setters, and quickly became an iconic aspirational Preppy brand--in the 1980s, just before the company closed, she was described as "the Queen of prep".
The company was re-opened in 1993, and its products are still highly desirable. However, the iconic vintage Pulitzer clothing from the original Lilly Pulitzer company is especially prized and has easily achieved Grail status... especially the menswear, which is considerably rarer than the women's clothing.
This jacket is classic Lilly, and was made before 1984 by the original company. Although there is no fabric content listed this is a lovely lighter-weight hopsack weave and is perfect for summer days. The colouring is a classic Lilly pink--certainly not a hot pink, but not sepia tea-rose either; something in between, and utterly wearable. It has, of course, a classic Lilly lining, featuring what became the unofficial mascot of the company--a rather cherubic lion. This motif also appears on all of the buttons, all of which are original to the jacket. The jacket is fully lined, and features a single centre vent. It has a contemporary two button closure, and subtle darts. It also features the ever-desirable patch pockets! It's also in excellent condition!
This is a lovely piece of utterly wearable sartorial history, and a true Preppy/Ivy classic, and, as such, is a steal at just
$85, or offer.
