The Song: "Golden Years" by David Bowie. It was used during the incredible dance scene in the movie "A Knights Tale" with the late and great Heath Ledger.
The Name: "A Knights Tale" is a clever blend of history with a modern twist. The design was created to be reminiscent of the super edgy costumes that actress Shannyn Sossamon wore in the film. High collars, flared sleeves and sumptuous fabrics.
The Design: This reworked creation is a combination of two jackets that have been seamlessly fused together to craft a completely unique show-stopper.
The dramatic blacks and golds of this jacket's embellishments contrast strikingly with the dark blue denim, making a statement that displays a refined yet distinctive aesthetic. The split bell sleeves are a true focal point of this design, boasting a silky gold lining, making it a dream to wear.
The layered, double collar gives you a more casual look if worn down, or if you feel like opting for a more eye-catching statement, can be worn standing up to reveal the fabric embellishment to the underside.
The reclaimed, ornate front buttons were selected for their slightly medieval feel to tie in with the jacket's overall theme. Slender black trim circumnavigates the armholes and back of the jacket to complete this sophisticated ensemble.
This versatile jacket can be worn with heels to a stylish bar or restaurant but is also easily adaptable to a casual trip to the movies with friends.
