This custom jacket was made by Versace in Italy, circa 1991, for American jazz musician, trumpeter, bandleader, and composer Miles Davis (1926 - 1991).
Davis wore this jacket during his performance with Quincy Jones for the Montreaux Jazz Festival, Switzerland, in 1991. Davis’ collaboration with Jones was one of his last performances and was a return to performing songs arranged by Gil Evans, that were featured on his albums from the 1950s, Miles Ahead, Porgy and Bess, and Sketches of Spain.
