1970's Granny Takes a Trip Documented Merlot Red Velvet Blazer Jacket
An incredibly rare and ultra chic Granny Takes a Trip merlot red velvet jacket from the closet of legendary Scottish rock singer-songwriter Frankie Miller. Granny Takes a Trip was an upscale shop operating from 1966 to 1979, and has been called the "first psychedelic boutique in groovy London". The store achieved worldwide renown, including a feature in Time magazine, and paved the way for many designer boutiques that followed such as Mr. Freedom, Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith. This luxurious merlot red velvet blazer was Frankie Miller's choice pick for his 1978 "Darlin'" music video. Even without the provenance, it's such an expectational blazer. I adore the lean, long sleeves tailored silhouette and mid length which looks fantastic open or closed. A truly stunning garment with rich history.
