1960s Silver Fox Fur & Leather Galanos Jacket
Fantastic and very rare Galanos jacket in an outstanding white tipped fox mixed with suede insets. The fur is thick and supple and it was definitely stored properly and cared for and appears to have been worn very little if at all. In fact, it feels like it has stepped out of a time capsule. It is cut in that fabulous over the top sixties style with a simple box cut and huge collar. Suede insets run down the inside of each sleeve and down the sides of the jacket. No thinning, issues or shedding. This is a rare and wonderful vintage fur from an important couturier. The equivalent coat purchased now would cost tens of thousands of dollars! This is an early piece based on the label and Bullocks label which has it apostrophe, a detail that was dropped from their label in 1970. However, to give you an idea of relative cost - later in the mid-eighties Galanos designed a fur collection for 5 years for furrier Peter Dion. In a 1987 New York Times article a short Lynx coat was quoted as being priced at $200,000 and the longer version at $300,000. in a 1986 article, a price range was again given with short beaver jackets starting at $15,000. One can only imagine the cost of this piece today based on adjusted values if you were to buy new! Excellent condition. Really a once in a lifetime piece.
Fully lined in a off white silk. Closes with a fur hook at the front. A pocket is created behind the front panel - it is actually open all down its edge and the suede extends under it - the resulting space creates a sort of pocket on each side - really amazing design. It has been specialty cleaned. Perhaps the teeniest of wear near the sleeve ends but nothing that mars or detracts.
