Amazing 1970s Givenchy Structured Taupe Print Coat

This particular coat from the Givenchy label is not only wonderful but a little unusual. It is made of an unusual fabric that feels almost coated. I think its a cotton mix that has been finished with a waterproofing material perhaps. This gives it a really odd texture that is not unpleasant just different. Its hard to describe but when you have it in your hands you will agree I am sure that it is unique. The treatment of the fabric also helps it to keep its wonderful structured feel and the soft taupe and white abstract pattern combine it make it a fabulous statement piece. The effect created by these two elements is dramatic and beautiful. The coat itself has classic lines with a pretty notched collar and an A-line cut through the body. It is extremely well made with a silk taffeta lining and all the buttons are properly finished. I love the thick round silver tone buttons that run down the front in a double row. It is absolutely gorgeous in person - better then the photos portray. Excellent, appears unworn condition

Fully lined in a chocolate silk taffeta. Proper finished buttonholes and interior buttons to keep it perfectly in place when buttoned. Appears unworn. Hand finishes. Tagged a vintage 38 but please check measurements
