1960s Stunning White Mink Evening Jacket
What an extraordinary and beautiful white mink evening jacket! It is easy to see the level of quality in this piece - the fur is extremely supple and soft. The jacket is pieced together in vertical stripes set extremely close together and matched perfectly for pile and color and so well done that you cant even see the edges at first glance. It has wide bands following the edge of the jacket's cut. I love how thoroughly modern it feels - some of these vintage jackets feel very dated and they are heavy - this one is light and almost fluid. The cut is wonderful - it is cropped and the sleeves come out from just above the waist so they are very wide and full. Really an extraordinary design. Perfect for over jeans or the dressiest occasion. In extraordinary condition - it has been stored properly and it shows!
Fully lined and has one fur hook to close at the front. There is a touch of yellowing to the lining but otherwise the jacket feels new.It was obviously properly stored. Gerry Trulaske is embroidered on the lining - she was a socialite and philanthropist in St Louis.
