Inspired by one of Australia's most beloved gem stones, the Lightning Ridge Black Opal Handwoven Raw Silk Jacket has been a centrepiece of the Joe Bananas collection since day one! This tapestry perfectly captures the spectrum of blue green, bright pink and yellow tones found in this unique Aussie Outback gemstone.


DRESS IT UP: Reconsider this in place of your your Tuxedo Jacket and a black Joe Neck T-Shirt in place of your dinner shirt. Own the look!


DRESS IT DOWN: Blue, crimson or bougainvillea chinos with a white or navy T-Shirt. The contrast of dark to light beneath the jacket completely changes the colours' intensity. 


FUN FACT: When Paul Hogan (Mick ‘Crocodile’ Dundee) first made his celebrity, he claimed to be from Lightning Ridge. While this helped drive tourism to the town, it is in fact untrue. Hogan is actually from Sydney.
