Fabulous 1960s Sybil Connolly Green Mohair Swing Coat

Sybil Connolly pieces are very rare things to find and this particular coat is a treasure. Connolly was known for creating haute couture from Irish textiles, particularly finely pleated linen, but she also worked with textiles like this, a combination of mohair and Irish wool, for her outerwear. She her first major show in 1953 and launched her couture label in 1957. Elizabeth Taylor and Jaqueline Kennedy were clients and her brand was highly sought after. The coat is such a remarkable color with its mix of green hues and subtle pops of blue worked through the yarn. It is all crossed woven and has an almost exaggerated herringbone pattern to it. I can't help but think you will be happy on even the most miserable of winter days in this glorious color - how could you not be? The mohair has been combine with a wool yarn I believe it is not excessively long haired like some mohair's are. It is very soft and has a nice weight that makes it easy to move in. It is cut to swing out through the body with simple full length sleeves. Really a fantastic coat and highly collectible. Excellent condition
