The answer to the title: NOTHING! I love everything on this Saks mannequin!
It’s hard to tell (well, impossible) that both the jacket & pants are shiny, so I used my excellent photo editing expertise to replicate the flash from my camera bouncing off of the fabric (which would clearly happen if I had a professional camera):
So while your eyes recover from the reflections, I’ll go on…
The jacket is in a brocade fabric. I love brocade. In fact, I once told my sewing buddy, that I wish I could work only in brocades. Bright colors! Shine! Texture! It’s great stuff. Even though I tend to wear a lot more neutrals in my “real life.”
The thing is, I think the shape is do-able, too.
Look at the waist. This just seems to be a basic coat with giant darts on the outside of the coat instead of the inside. Seems easy enough! This is one I just might try. Don’t know if I’ll make a coat (for goodness sakes, I’m six months into two different coats and neither is even close to done!). But I could see this cute architectural detail being used in just about anything! I’m thinking shirt. But these jackets still come first!
