Screen Siren Jacket in deep forest combed twill by Emmy Design Sweden.
Emmy Design Sweden have fulfilled their promise of making me feel like a siren of the silver screen with this beautiful jacket. The sleeves are nice and long, and there’s plenty of room in the arms for a thick winter knit to keep you extra toasty. The jacket looks 1940s perfect when the collar is sitting open, and when buttoned up. There are four buttons below the bust, and only two buttons securing the jacket at the neck, so it can be a tiny bit breezy. I’m considering adding some hidden press studs to keep the jacket sealed, because I really love the look of it buttoned up – I apologise for how creased the jacket is in these photos, because they don’t show off just how beautiful the appearance is when done up. The fully lined jacket cuts in at the waist and then flares out slightly over the hip, creating a very flattering shape. The New Look inspired peplum detail on the back is striking, and the lightly puffed shoulders complete the look.
The super soft fabric is heavy combed twill. The tag on the jacket says it is 100% wool, but the website states this particular Screen Siren Jacket is 78% polyester with a tiny bit of spandex… I mean… it feels like wool?** Generally I try to avoid having too much polyester in my wardrobe and opt for natural fibres that are kinder to my skin and the environment. If you’re the same, this is something to take into consideration when purchasing this jacket and double check with the team at Emmy Design. If it is in fact polyester, Emmy Design Sweden offers a wide range of 100% wool garments for winter layers and versions of this jacket that are listed as wool, so perhaps these might be more suitable for you. **UPDATE: The Screen Siren Jacket I own is from Emmy’s Autumn/Winter 2017 collection, but they have brought the style back in their latest Autumn/Winter 2020 collection. The new Screen Siren Jackets have new features including a removable cape, and are 100% wool! You can find them here.
I feel fierce in this jacket. Pair it with curls, a red lip, a beret and your choice of 40s dress, skirt or trousers and you have yourself one badass outfit. I have been told I give people French Resistance or Cold War spy vibes when wearing the jacket styled this way. Personally, I love that people on the street are looking at a woman dressed vintage and associating the look with strength, formidability and courage, rather than oppression and misogyny. But I digress… This jacket is still available in a small selection of colours, so go check it out!
