When I first saw this jacket I thought “That’s something Dracula would go after.” I took the picture in the early evening and in natural light, however the first close-up image showed up as a ghost image. It is as dramatic as that in person-I don’t use photoshop, fancy backgrounds or alter any of my images. The blood red buttons almost vibrate and shine-although I took these photos by the window, it was getting dark out. It’s silhouette is very modern with Victorian Gothic and Medieval influences. The colors are very similar to Vladmir the Impaler’s portraiture during the Order of the Dragon. It is a stunning piece in fantastic condition and appears to have been unworn as crushing on this kind of velvet would be more evident. Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Vintage French size 36.
