"Your Song" is registered number 14 on our authenticity database.
Clare's signature, the register number of the garment and its name are recorded on the back of the Declare label that has been sewn inside this jacket.
The Song: “Your Song” by Elton John, the timeless ballad that Elton John wrote at his piano in the early part of 1970.
The Name: We love this artist, so this audacious number was designed to be reminiscent of a garment that Elton himself wore back in the day. Super stylish, all attitude and completely unapologetic.
The Design: This jacket says "I'm fabulous" from top to bottom. The Levi’s base jacket was chosen not only for its superior quality but for its ability to portray a 70’s personality, once combined with its reworked embellishments and to snugly fit the showy, hand-sewn sleeves.
Your Song is a hybrid of two garments. The main embellishment used was an original, reclaimed designer jacket that boasted divinely soft faux fur sleeves and faux snakeskin. This was a perfect contrast with the light denim bodice. The blend of fabrics gives the finished piece an effective visual and tactile texture.
The faux snakeskin detail used to the back, collar and trim pops with teal, speaking subtly to the blue denim, while the gold shoulder sequins soften the jacket's look, creating a soft but edgy aesthetic.
To finish this stunningly unique creation it has been completely lined for comfort, stitched by hand in a beautiful gold coloured satin.
A statement piece worthy of the rock god/ess that you are! x
