Documented 1970 Gold Trim Felted Wool Malcolm Starr Coat

A year or so ago I had the dress that matches this coat and I am sad that I did not find the two at the same time. I have since dated both after finding a reference photo in Vogue. Regardless of that this is an absolutely gorgeous Malcolm Starr coat with superb detailing. It is made of a felted wool with a gorgeous print that covers its surface in an unusual combination of blues, olives and deep corals mixed with pops of white. It closes neatly down the front with a row of brass cut out dome buttons encrusted with rhinestones that add a little sparkle and glitz. I love the slim cut that gently flares out as it nears the hem. A small round collar sits prettily at the neck and is detailed with a gold ribbon edging. This same gold runs down the front and circles each cuff. Lovely lines, well made and stunning detail - all adding up to a really wonderful little coat. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a deep blue silk and buttons to close. I see no missing rhinestones on any buttons. Silk lined pockets along the front seams. Finished button holes.
