AW2015-16 RAVAZZOLO Silk Paisley Dinner Jacket with Swarovski Crystal Buttons
” It is wonderful, is it not? That on that small pivot turns the fortune of such multitudes of men, women, and children, in so many parts of the world; that such industry, and so many fine faculties, should be brought out an exercised by so small a thing as a button. “
– Charles Dickens
From across the dim lighted party room, the one wearing looks as if he were wearing a basic black dinner jacket. However, the sheen from the silk in dim lighting is unavoidable as well as the glistening of the swarovski crystal buttons beaming light in every which direction that is capturing the attention to every patron attending the hosted charity party. About midway in distance to the gentleman you can begin to see the details of this incredible design. History of the paisley print begins to scroll through your mind dating as far back as your grade schooling. However, this was much more than the rule of the Sassanians empire who’s savaged army managed to keep the Romans at bay for centuries. This gentleman was his own empire slaying the comforts of style of those around him. So modern, so elegant and so far ahead to the perception of those observing him. Mentally you jot down the styling details of the garment. You realize you must approach this man to ask him where he purchased this beautifully worn art as if you were in line to ask a buddhist monk the answer to life.
