I love this sassy and vintage 1990s hooded Escada top, from the European designer brand. A subtle gold thread runs throughout the top which was made in Slovakia. I always think of Kylie Minogue in her ‘Better the Devil You Know’ film clip from 1990 in which she dances in hot pants and a white hooded crop top. Hooded tops were quite the thing in the 1990s!
