Note: This was one of André's most beloved pieces, as he wore it frequently from about 1995. He was photographed wearing it to the Board Aid Lifebeat Benefit at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, California on March 14, 1995, and attending numerous New York fashion week shows during the fall season, including for the Fall 2004, 2010, and 2014 seasons. He also wore it to the inauguration of President Barack Obama in January 2009, accompanied by good friend Diane Von Furstenberg. 


In good overall condition; scattered snags to nylon at exterior, small loss to fur at center back neck where label was probably removed; and stich loss to nylon at hem.
