I was super excited when I got an email from longtime friend and fashion designer Kahindo Mateene! She asked me to do a collaboration with her for some of her new pieces! This amazing tuxedo jacket is the business and I love the custom geometric print in all the shades of green and black! What a great piece to add to my Fall collection and you can wear this silky Japanese fabric in many ways! It’s also fully lined, and has a satin collar, yes mam! I wore this jacket with fishnets and tall boots but it can be worn with a pencil skirt or tuxedo pants as well.
I vision wearing this out on a date or heading to an event! Not too many events coming up here in Atlanta but it was just a hopeful thought lol. I wanted to also mention that I received this outfit in less than three days too, the customer service and shipping was fantastic! Check out more images inside and make sure to check out Kahindo’s online website where she has a lot of amazing pieces to add to your collection, tell her I sent yah!
