"Bolero Nights" is registered #33 on our authenticity database.
The name of the garment, its registration number and Clare's signature are recorded on the back of the Declare panel that has been sewn inside the jacket.
The Song: "Slave to the Rhythm" by Grace Jones...named partly for the love of this flamboyant performer who has always refused to conform to perceptions of gender, but also because we felt this design reflects the sensual and sultry vibe that the song elicits.
The Name: “Bolero Nights” - The jacket was crafted to reflect a classic Spanish style design. Also because the Bolero is a style of dance, which ties into the song's lyrics about the continuous rhythm of life.
The Design: There's a subtly sexy finesse that this garment evokes, to be worn for seductive nights out in style.
With a vision that consisted of elegantly sensual, the portrayal of romanticism that maintains its class was key in bringing you this design.
Contrasting a fitted, light blue denim cropped jacket that sits snugly around your bodice, the long flamboyantly ornate brushed silk sleeves* attract attention as your arms swish, with their tiny dangling beads dancing lightly over the hands.
The collar sits proud, lined in black satin for comfort, boasting a sparkling silver faux gem embellishment that ties into the drama of the heavily sequinned back panel, who's fabric was reclaimed from a sparkly evening dress. The abstract, monochromatic triangular pattern of this aspect of the jacket's design drops to the waist to finish in small, edgy zig zags for an added feature.
Bolero Nights is comfortably lined in sleek black satin, making it not only a statement piece for a glam night out, but will have you partying the night away with ease.
* Please note: On the very rare occasion that we do select embellishments such as silk or feathers, they are reclaimed, so our respect for the earth does not wane.
