Fall 2006 Louis Vuitton Tweed Boucle Coat with Detachable Collar

This Fall 2006 coat is a great example of the work that Marc Jacobs was doing during his time there as Creative Director and still feels fresh style wise now.  It is made out of a beautiful fabric that mixes wool. mohair, alpaca and just a touch of nylon so that the fabric can move on the weft. It has a square front neckline that is highlighted by a mink fur collar. For those opposed to fur, the collar is easily detachable so that you can wear it without. It has a double breasted front with six buttons. The waist is seamed and the lower part of the coat set in with a bit of volume around the upper portion of the skirting of the coat. Each sleeve is cut long and lean with a single tuck above the cuff and five button detail running down at the wrist. At the hem there is a tiered box pleat ruffle for the perfect finish. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a light taupe silk through the body and ivory silk in the sleeves. It closes at the front with the buttons as shown and hidden fabric covered snaps under that. Pockets at the front of each hip. Tagged LV 42 and appears to have been worn little, if at all.

I have a small collection of historically important, key designer labelled vintage furs and fur trimmed pieces stored away in my archives that I will be slowly posting on the site over the next couple of years until I have none left. I will no longer be buying furs for the shop moving forward and have not purchased anything for several years now. I feel like times have changed and while there still is a place for vintage furs for some, including collectors and historians, many modern girls are choosing other options. Many of the pieces in my collection are representative of the designer during a set time period in history that was different then our modern outlook. I have decided that the best course to handle this controversial issue is to let the pieces I have go rather then sit in a cold storage unit. Fur coats are final sale.
