This jacket, I'm told, is probably by a luxury designer such as Versace. Apparently, the chain design is typical.
Here's an unusual red cropped jacket, reversible, with an interesting design on the other side. It came from Unicorn.
The theme once more is blue. But also chocolate, because this jacket is reversible. That seems to be common with these Chinese jackets: I posted about a reversible blue/gold silk jacket a week ago, and this red silk jacket is also reversible, with solid red on one side, and black with red circles on the other. When I posted about it, I remarked on the intensity of its dye. The colour here is if anything more intense. It makes anything else I wear it over look shabby.
Like my embroidered velvet Turkish cape, I suspect
this one was intended for decoration rather than protection. It's
made of blue velvet, now a little faded in places, as the third photo
The Vintage Fashion Guild website has a "label resource" at https://vintagefashionguild.org/label-resource/ . This is an alphabetical index of pages, each linking to a list of labels under its letter. Some pages have as many as 50 brands, or even more. Brands that I looked at included Frank Usher: their page showed labels from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, plus one fake, a knockoff from India.
I thought I'd list the labels I've photographed, in case it's any help in adding to such resources. I can't vouch for the dates of any of my items, but I'm sure there are experts who will be able to give good estimates. If you want to use any of the photos on your own site, please let me know via my contact form. Below, there's a photo, with label, of each item for which I had a label. The little hand to the right of the brand name links to its original blog post. The WordPress link http://www.chromophilia.uk/blog/category/labels/ also points at those posts, plus this one.

Here's another patterned bolero jacket to go with the Tracery in my last post. This time, the stripes are made of plastic rings sewn onto the fabric. Would one call these sequins, or do they have a special name?
This is the jacket that's behind the security guard's hand in my last post ...
