1960s Harlequin Metallic Brocade Coat

There is nothing in this world to make an outfit get an instant dose of glamour then a fantastic vintage coat and this 1960s one is spectacular. It will add an instant touch of vibrant, bright color to any outfit with its amazing multi color metallic brocade. The cut is a simple A-line with sleek and simple sleeves and a double row of metal buttons down the front. Low slung front pockets are hidden along the seams. The interior is lined in silk which feels like a dream to wear. It is a piece that was made in Hong Kong in the 1960s when some of the best brocade work was being done on the planet for a division of the Malcolm Starr company and it has that fantastic Malcolm Starr vibe. It is bright and bold and wonderful! Excellent condition!

Shoulders: 16" across
Bust: 22" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 20" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: 22" flat across the inside back from side seam to side seam
Length: 42" from mid neck at the back to bottom hem
Sleeves: 22" from shoulder seam to longest point

The coat is fully lined in a black tissue silk and it closes with the metal buttons. Two of the buttons caps have fallen off at some point - personally I would pry the others off as they are great looking without the black caps but I have adjusted the price a bit because of this. It is fairly light weight and not unwieldy to wear. The threads in this type of fabric tend to pop out here and there - I have removed most and will go over it again but it will happen - it can't be helped with this fabric and should not be considered a flaw but a natural component of the aging of the fabric.
