A jacket with a story. This reversible jacket was made in 2019 and is an editon of 43. One side is made from 100% silk and the other a wax coated cotton with beautiful embroidery detail, featuring the Dent De Leone Logo.

"On the 11th of July 2023, Mr and Mrs Boetti discover on the side of a walking trail between les Carroz d’Arraches and Samoens in the French Alps, a neatly folded pile of women's clothing. They have not met anybody for more than two hours and intrigued by the idea that someone could have left the trail, naked—and to go where?—the couple empty the pockets and only find a wallet. The full contents of this wallet is represented on this jacket."

"After having called the police and slightly shaken by the discovery, they return to Turin where they live. The first night, both of them have the same dream. They are in a bar somewhere in the midwest, in the States.. In their dream, a young woman sat at their table despite the place being rather empty. For Mrs Boetti she is blonde, for Mr Boetti, she is dark haired and reminds him of Pocahontas from the Disney movie. After what seems to be a slightly uncomfortable silence the young woman asks them if they would like to see something. They suddenly feel at ease and nod positively to her request to realise the content of her wallet is already spread across the table."
