Fancy chainstitch embroidered vintage Rickrageous royal blue Day of the Dead bolero jacket with tiny hand done edge stitching in white finishing the edge on the jacket front and colllar.
The fully POP satin lined 1 button jacket is cropped and sports the Rickrageous signature individually set Swarovski iridescent crystal embellishments amongst the chainstitched scene. The jacket frontside boasts a wild chainstitch design with the figures of the Dia de los Muertos festival dancing, drinking and having a party, all sparkling with the set gems! This bar scene depicts skeletons boozing it up and rambling blue roses, too. More bar room antics and boot scootin' trails down both sleeves accompanied by the blue roses at both shoulders and cuffs. The backside of the jacket has a yoke of blue roses topping a skeleton caballero and bucking bronc completing the rodeo chainstitched theme with hundreds of crystals!
This blue jacket is perfectly covered in whimsical fun, a tremendous and dazzling piece! Jacket is in wonderful condition, one small area has snagged on the underside of the right hand cuff (see in pics).

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."
