1980s Valentino Ice Blue & Taupe Patterned Wrapped Mohair Robe or Light Coat

This is actually part of the Intimo Couture line by Valentino so would have been meant to be a robe but I think someone could get away with wearing this as an amazing outdoor coat and playing on the men's bathrobe feel that it has. The coat is made out of a super soft mohair that is done on a muted pastel mix of pale blues, creams and taupes. The pattern is an over-sized plaid that covers the entire robe. Inside the coat is lined in a soft, pale blue silk that gives it a pretty flash of colour when you move. The soft lines of the piece make it very comfortable to wear. The cut is a play on a men's bathrobe. The collar is rounded and soft and it is finished in a pale blue satin. Each sleeve is cut extra long and you can wear the cuffs down and keep that long feel or flip them up. When they are flipped up you see that each cuff is backed in the same soft blue satin as the collar. The sleeves are cut straight and wide. It has its original tie belt in a matching mohair and you simply wrap the robe around you and tie it into place with the belt. Pockets are hidden along the seam of the hip on either side. It is gorgeous and cuddly and wonderfully made. It looks to have never been worn or worn very little. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a place blue silk and wraps to close with the belt. The cut is very forgiving. It should easily work as an over-sized garment on a smaller girl and will work equally well on a larger frame. Pockets on each hip. Some light scuffing to the silk lining. Tagged a large. It is more a blue and ivory in person then the taupe it photos as
