1930s Blue Velvet Double Cape Cocoon Coat
Feast your eyes on this divine creation of deep cobalt blue silk (or silk/rayon) velvet. Its a classic "cocoon" cut with a loose fit to the body and no closures in the front, but its taken up a few steps with the addition of the double cape over the shoulders. There are no sleeves, just the loosely hanging capes cascading down the shoulders, arms and back. the coat is lined in blue silk. I was imported by I. Magnin & Co, which was a very high end department store in California. I am fairly sure this piece was imported from Paris, and very well could have been designed and made by one of the grand couturiers of Paris. All the edges are hand hemmed.
