1960s Saks Fifth Avenue Brocade Coat
This is a lovely coat made of luminous brocade fabric, a golden yellow with sky blue and cream flowers. The cut is clean and quite "modern" for the time of course. It brings to mind designs by Balenciaga and Givienchy, double breasted with slight princess seams, low side pockets and bracelet length sleeves. The coat is lined in dove gray tafeta (the lining has a band of blue at the bottom indicating the coat may have been let down an inch though I see no other evidence of such an alteration).
