Gianni Versace Jacket

Description of Garment:

White Jacket

Manufacturer: Gianni Versace

RN#: 118861

Care Label Instructions: Professionally Dryclean in Perchloroethylene, Tumble Dry 40°C.

Problem: This jacket contains buckles, snaps and closures that were affixed to the garment with an adhesive binder. When drycleaned according to the care label instructions (in perchloroethylene), the adhesive binder dissolved, causing a loss of the trimming.

Responsibility: The manufacturer's. This jacket failed when drycleaned according to the care label instructions. This was due to the solubility (in perchloroethylene) of the adhesive binder.

Recommendation: If this jacket fails when drycleaned according to the care label instructions, it should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange.


Drycleaner: Explain the potential serviceability issues to the customer. Since this jacket may prove to be unserviceable when processed by the care label instructions, a signed release of liability should be obtained prior to its acceptance.
