Black and Gold Silk

This is a gold-on-black silk jacket from Unicorn. Probably Chinese or Japanese, and perhaps the flowers are stylised chrysanthemums? The colours contrast nicely with both reds and blues, worn over or under, and this top is useful as an extra layer in the spring. Like my red Chinese silk top, the fastenings are loops and Chinese balls rather than buttonholes and buttons. You can see three loops to the left of the pocket in the second photo. Unlike the red silk, the texture is glossy and almost rubbery. In contrast, the red silk is matte and feels slightly cottony.
