1990s Christian Lacroix Butter Soft Black Suede Wrap Coat

This coat is just spectacular - the suede used is so light and butter sift that you could almost get away with wearing this as a dress. It certainly has the lines and styling of one. It is a wrap coat and I love that the ties are a contrasting cotton tape ribbon done in a black to match the suede. The ties are very long so really play off the luxury of the suede. Each cuff has that same touch os contrast - he chose a extra long knit ribbing for each of the cuffs. The collar is cut low and deep to the waist. The jacket is fitted and cinches in at the waist by the ties. The lower portion is just gorgeous with its ruffled and curved hem that really flounces and adds a beautiful detail. It is hard to see in the photos but all the suede panels are stitched together with a silver metal thread that give it a pretty detailing as you see it up close. It was a little too bog on my mannequin and will fit even better on the proper sized girl. Really exceptional and the photos don't do it justice. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a black silky rayon and ties to close at the front. Ribbed knit cuffs are 8" long. There was a little hole in one that I have had a stitch put into to secure. You don't see this once on because of the way they sit and slightly bunch up. Tagged a 44
