Medium-sized Dragon classic jacket by Walid
British-Iraqi designer Walid Damirji travels the world collecting materials like an anthropologist gathers evidence of wild and wonderful things.
He assembles his medley of rococo silks, belle époque passementerie, ancient cashmeres, 1920s linens, frothing reams of lace, recycled furs, 18th Century ecclesiastical embroideries and chinoiserie Spanish shawls and reimagines them into one-of-a-kind pieces.
With his characteristic hand-worked By Walid label and one-of-a-kind ethos, Walid knows every one of his ‘looks’ and can talk about items of his clothing like old friends.
This one-off medium-sized jacket has been made from a 19th Century kimono.
