1960s Valentino Silk Taupe Coat or Dress

Stunning taupey pink silk that has the feel and look of a sharkskin silk. It is beautifully made and a classic A-line. It opens completely so is a proper jacket but I think you could easily make it play double duty as a dress if you wished. It closes with wonderful gold tones metal buttons that are each rounded and have that famous Valentino V on them in high relief. Each sleeve has a little "cuff" of a cafe au lait silk under its hem - a lovely touch that ups the coat's overall refined feel. A simple neckline and faux pocket flaps on each hip are the perfect details. Excellent condition with one small flaw to note. Please see next paragraph.

Fully lined in a taupe silk and buttons to close with the metals embossed buttons. The pockets on each hip are decorative only. There are two tiny nicks in the fabric of the shoulder where the fabric has thinned a touch. They are left as is - I felt that a stitch might make them more apparent. Priced accordingly
