1970s Cashmere Halston Maxi or Coat

If you watch my twitter feed that you might recognize this coat - I could not resist taking it for a spin when attended one of the Toronto Fashion week shows last week! It is an amazing piece that I styled as a long maxi coat. It was meant to be a maxi dress and works wonderfully as that as well but buy knowing you can use it for either! It's all cashmere so it light and warm. The color is amazing - more of a coral than what has photoed and I love the subtle herringbone pattern that runs through it - really unusual even in his cashmere pieces. It buttons all the way down. I have shown it as it was meant to be worn - long and lean but you can also easily belt this. Versatile and beautiful it is an amazing and rare piece of fashion history and in excellent, museum quality condition.
