Not for me these days but looks alot like Koos van den Akker from the 70's. . Koos was very popular back then and I lucked out and have one of my mother's coats from that period. Guess that means it's vintage....(ouch) He likes to mix all sorts of textures and styles and created his own patchwork of sorts.
Here are some pics of that coat.

It's always interesting to look at vintage and see where designers get their "inspiration". Nine years ago it was Balenciaga (Nicolas Ghesquiere) whose work looked very very Koos.

When I photographed the painted mural I didn't realize this is where it would lead me.... but it was fun connecting the dots.
