This Red Satin Slashed Baseball Jacket from Vivienne Westwood’s spring 1991 collection references the Renaissance fashion trend of “slashing,” in which a series of small cuts made to the outer fabric of a garment (here, red rayon satin) reveals the contrasting lining (white burlap) beneath . This style demonstrates Vivienne Westwood’s studies of historic fashion, while also offering a more refined version of the designer’s ripped and ragged punk aesthetic of the 1970s.
