Number (N)ine SS2004 Silk Sukajan Jacket


Named after a song by the cult legend band “Suicide”, Number (N)ine’s SS04 collection was a love letter to the romantic, junkie heroes of New York’s past. The Rimbaud acolytes, Patti Smith and Tom Verlaine and Richard Hell all found themselves on t-shirts, as did the snakebitten rockstar Johnny Thunders. A bomber featuring a map of New York graced the runway, which only briefly veered away from monotone, and only for tastes of poisonous reds and greaser-style leopard prints. The jeans were tight but the pants were cut straight, models wore unstructured blazers — tops were made with mesh, and blacked-out zips. It had a rakish, heroin-chic vibe that would have felt at home in the dim lights of CBGB.

This souvenir jacket was among the more luxurious pieces produced in 04. Featuring a fully silk body with delicate embroidery of tigers both roaring and crouched, and “Number (N)ine written in Bengali.  True to the season, it’s customizable with removable sleeves, allowing it to be worn as a vest. 

Condition: 8/10. Normal signs of wear. Front zipper pull tabs missing, otherwise functional. Tag was re-sewn on, and it is upside down for some unknown reason.
