A very cool and rare vintage black wool sweater by London label La Rocka with a supersized version of their iconic skull and crossbones motif.
It was purchased by the original owner in Johnson’s shop on the King’s Road in London in the 1980s.
The shop is no longer in existence and they never went into mass production of their goods so any pieces still in circulation are rare and limited edition which, makes them very desirable and collectible.
The sweater has a crew neck, ribbed cuffs, hem and neckline. It has dropped shoulders and is an oversized style so, can fit a variety of sizes depending on the desired fit.
