I love this jacket, and wish I could recall the title of the recent French movie whose main character wore it really well. Others liked it too, as it sold out immediately on release, at US$11,000 (oh yes and worth every penny for the embroidery hours). The Bruno Frisoni shoe -
I have not settled on what dress I would wear between the jacket and the shoes, but am reminded of this from my idol - "Joan Rivers, said once when she saw a celebrity wearing a terrible dress allegedly chosen by her boyfriend -
