Inspired by a patched denim jacket Alessandro Michele hand-stitched to wear on a trip to LA, this piece is lined with shearling and adorned with a mix of embroideries representing some of the collection’s most recognizable motifs, including the butterfly, bee, tiger and the phrase "L’Aveugle Par Amour" which translates to “Blind For Love.” The individually embroidered appliqués are sewn to the garment by hand, a process that takes approximately four hours to complete for each jacket.

The fabric undergoes a treatment that involves stonewashing with enzymes and pumice stones. It is then sprayed to achieve a marbled, vintage effect.
