Early 1980s Halston Chic and Simple Black Wool & Cashmere Coat
I love Halston's work and personally think that his coats are exceptional. He tended to keep them extremely minimalist and that makes them virtually timeless. This one is cut to just below the knee and I think this length makes it very versatile. It is cut with the utmost respect to the fabric with minimal seaming to create the beautiful sleek line that you see. The curves and simple seams become a part of the design and all of them are set vertically. The color is a deep jet black and when done in this fabric that mixes wool and cashmere has the feel of wool blanket. It slips on and buttons into place. The upper body is more fitted and this is balanced with the lower portion of the coat where it flares out from the hip. Pockets sit along each hip and the glossiness of the buttons down the front are the only decoration. It is a wonderful versatile piece that is very wearable and collectible. Excellent condition.
Unlined with finished interior seams. It buttons to close at the front. Pockets on each hip
