Design History 101: Shanghai Surprise

Design History 101: Shanghai Surprise

by Cheryl McMullen September 15, 2010 5 Comments

Following up on the Asian Fusion trend here's another key piece with gypset spirit, but with a military twist.

Double D Ranch's Shanghai Surprise Jacket takes a direct cue from a vintage floral Chinese robe.  The "highs" of the intricate cherry blossom embroidery get interestingly mixed with the "lows" of vintage travel destination patches.  The "high" of a genuine raccoon fur collar juxtapose the "low" of surplus military - transforming a basic travel jacket into a wardrobe 'must have'.

I think the orange is great too – I added it as the “poison” color.
