Another Major Global Step for Iconic Fashion Brand Tiffany Amber – “Peter Pan” Jacket Debuts on Leading Retail Site Yoox.com

Published

 on

In the December 2008, the Creative Director of Power fashion house Tiffany Amber Nigeria – Folake Folarin-Coker collaborated with one of her favourite muses – Tope Edu. The collection was so popular that it sold out on the actual day of the launch, this definitely was a first of its kind in Nigeria.

Folake Folarin-Coker said “We (Tope and I) felt, that we wanted a piece that would fit into any wardrobe, anywhere in the world but still retain an African signature. The Peter Pan jacket did just that; we called it Peter Pan because of its shape and it’s almost fairytale like elegance. Ultimately we wanted to bring the freshness of the new African aesthetic to the world stage.”

The Peter Pan Jacket comes quilted and hand-embroidered and there are apparently innumerable ways to style it as shown by numerous stylists from all over the world. The Peter Pan Jacket is a runway success featuring in the Tiffany Amber A/W 2009 collection at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week where it was described as a piece that belonged in the white house in the wardrobe of Michelle Obama. It was then shown at Fashion Business Angola in 2010 and has since become a staple in Tiffany Amber collections.

On her visit to Nigeria in January this year, Vogue Italia’s editor – Franca Sozzani fell in love with the Peter Pan Jacket and wore it.

      its on the website, its not listed under the main categories though, check under special editions….however, it is ridiculously over priced, if I had £934 I sure won’t spend it on that hideous jacket, its ugly and its cotton….BN pls post my comment

    Even if i had the dosh to spare, that not-very-fashion-editor-looking fashion editior just killed it for me. NO,NO,NO. Madam Oyinbo, biko a lil tushing up for the jacket’s sake would not have killed you, would it?

    i think people seem to forget the fact that the label tiffany amber’s makes luxury products, also the peter pan jackets are not only tailored perfectly but also the embroidery is done by hand and the effort to produce one takes a number of days

      May 11, 2012 at 12:33 am

      It’s done by hand??….hmmmm! Did u see with thine eyes?

    I don’t see what the fuss is bout the coat or the vogue italia editor rocking the number besides its feels she was forced into it! If I saw it on Anna Wintour or Ruth Osime,may be I wd figure much which the coat is buzz worthy cos its certain theyl make a staement with it! All the same,good for u tiffany!

    This article is a bit misleading/incomplete. Yoox is running a special edition titled ‘discovered in Africa’ and it includes LDA as well as other African designers. Theres a related article and video online..check it out. http://www.yoox.com/uk/project/vogueafrica/?tp=36129?utm_source=20120507-vogueafrica&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=us

    I would have loved to see interviews of the designers as well as the team from Vogue IT. Anyways this is their description of the project from the site “Vogue Italia’s curated selection of ten brands of local craftsmanship and global appeal: ten collections discovered in Africa and on sale at yoox.com. Learn more about an initiative that supports African fashion and watch the video interview with the authors of the project.”
