1970s Jean Varon Green Dress or Coat

This is a drop dead gorgeous piece that is completely versatile! Another iconic Jean Varon design it has been constructed out a super glossy flat pile synthetic velvet that is a true deep deep forest green. The photos do not come close to capturing the depth and glossiness of the color and how it catches the light when the wearer moves. It can be worn as both a fantastic and show stopping evening coat or can be worn as a dress if kept done up! The coat's design is based on volume and draping. Each sleeve billows to the wrist and is gathered at the wrist in pleat work, The collar is high and again gathered there. The back is constructed with flat pleats that widen as they near the hem to give it lots of volume and movement. Similar pieces reside in museums around the world and it is fantastic example of his work on in the most striking of all the colors I have ever seen this done in. Very dramatic! Excellent, museum quality condition!
