1960s Unlabeled Pink & Gold Metallic Silk Brocade Maxi Coat
This evening coat is incredible. I love the silk brocades from this time period and this one does not disappoint. The coat is exquisite in person and even better then how it photoed. The coat is made from a beautiful embroidered brocade that has gold and silver threads running through it. There are also threads in tones of pink and the combination of that against the soft ivory of the base. Even though the entire coat has a metallic glint to it, the soft pastel palette used makes it seem subtle and refined. The lines of the coat are beautiful and very representative of this time period. I love the rounded and padded collar and how the snap is set in at its end so when closes you get a complete circle effect. The inner silk is stitched in a intricate design that gives hidden detailing that only the wearer will know about until the coat opens or you take it off. It buttons to just past the hip and the shape gradually widens out as it nears the hem. It is so chic and so rich feeling - you would be hard pressed to find anything like it again. It was undoubtedly a custom piece. Excellent condition
Fully lined in a beautiful ivory silk that is stitched in an Asian pattern all around the under edges. This stitching/quilting effect runs up along the edge of the front and around the top inner neckline. The coat closes with fabric covered buttons down the front. The piping along the collar has a hidden snap to fully close the two ends together. Hidden pockets along the inset front seams
