Fancy beaded vintage Rickrageous black good luck horseshoes & floral gabardine jacket with tiny hand done edge stitching in blue finishing the edge on the jacket front and collar.
The fully satin lined 1 button jacket is cropped and sports the Rickrageous signature individually set Swarovski iridescent crystal embellishments amongst the heavily beaded scene. The jacket front has a symmetrical beaded and set stone design with flowers, vines and leaves running up the front sides terminating at a lucky horseshoe on each side. The flowers wind themselves up the lapels and collars, too. A fancy touch is the addition of turquoise blue arrow chest pockets amongst the shimmering glass bead floral backdrop, and all sparkling with the set gems.
The sleeves each climb with leafy tendrils and flowers with another lucky horseshoe stamped at each cuff. The backside boasts a massive, beaded bouquet set slightly asymmetrically which adds to its drama! The all-over design sets one lucky horseshoe between the shoulder blades with ornate scrollwork as the bouquet meanders down the back with other horseshoes appearing at random until the whimsy ends directly at the bottom edge of the jacket back!
This ornate and gorgeous jacket is likely a complete one-of-a-kind! Jacket is in excellent condition.

The people behind Rickrageous have retired now and the pieces we have were from their own stash and private collection. Each piece is at least 20-25 years old. These pieces are stunning in person!
A bit about the now defunct brand:
"We start the creative process' by putting together a design that meets the specific vision of what the Client wants their piece to reflect. We then bring these designs to life using circa 1900's chain stitch embroidery machines. Once the embroidery is laid we then compliment the embroidery with Thousands of hand set Swarovski® crystals meticulously placed onto each piece in Tiffany settings."
