2000 Minimalist Biker Jacket in Technical Coated Linen
Size IT 48; men's M.
CoSTUME NATIONAL minimalist jacket from S/S 2000. Made in Italy.
In good used condition with wear on the fabric's interior side.
CoSTUME NATIONAL's S/S 2000 collection featured sportswear garments distinguished by their resolved simplicity. This biker-inspired jacket captures the aesthetic with its streamlined shape and sophisticated details. The fabric is an unusual performance blend consisting of 48% linen, 40% nylon and 12% polyurethane. The linen content brings texture; the nylon offers durability and a subtle synthetic shine. The polyurethane is applied on the fabric's underside, giving it water-resistant properties. This tasteful combination of natural and artificial components is paramount to both style and function.
Discreet but directional, the design has a concealed zipper closure. The short moto collar has an angular tip and fastens with velcro. A self-fabric stripe is precisely applied across the waist, creating a simple point of interest. The sleeves feature similar applications on the inner elbows, inspired by protective biker padding. Note the vertical seams that define the sleeves' outer side. The interior is unlined with wide facing panels.
