1973 Valentino Striped Lightweight Coat

Whenever you find a piece that is dated it instantly becomes extra special! This piece is clearly gated 1973 and it is fabulous to boot! It is constructed from a coated cotton that allows it to be light and easy to wear during the warmer months but retain its shape and feel more "coat like" then it would be otherwise, It is cut loose and easy with a tie belt to give it shape. The entire body is cut straight and the sleeves almost a dolman cut. Huge pockets sit on each front hip and each sleeves ends in a large turned up cuff. I love it! You could probably even wrap it and wear it as a dress! Excellent, seemingly unworn condition!

Unlined and buttons to close. Original tie belt that is also in excellent condition
