1960s Rare Philippe Venet Green Coat & Belt

This is an excellent and rare example of Philippe Venet work. A fine wool is woven into a subtle herringbone pattern in a soft green. I love the princess cut full skirt and how the sleeves each have a slight pouf above the deep cuffs. Front flap pockets and high neck mix in a slight military feel. Retains its original suede belt that is numbered on the back suggesting a custom or special order. Venet worked under both Elsa Schiaparelli and Givenchy and was especially known for his beautiful tailored coats! Stunning and in excellent condition.

Lined in green silk with hand finishes. Closes with buttons and hidden, fabric covered snaps. Proper finished buttonholes. Hidden pockets along front seams. Note that the belt shows some separation from the back leather backing where the glue has let go but presents perfectly from the front.

Bust: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 15" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 21" flat across from side seam to side seam
