Immaculate 1960s Courreges Unusually Seamed Camel Toggle Coat

This coat is stunning in its simplicity and sense of timelessness. It is made out of a light wool that has almost a jersey finish to it. The color in person is more of a true camel than how my camera could capture it and I think the color is far better in person. This is a classic Courreges choice of fabrication and he often used variations of this fabric because of how it would hold his desired shapes but still feel comfortable on the body. There is a slight ribbed texture to it and this picks up on that intricate seaming that details both the back and front of the coat. Each seam is set on a sharp angle that angles in towards the waist. This visually gives the illusion of shape even though the coat is cut fairly straight on the body. It also adds an interesting design element to an otherwise fairly simply cut coat. The collar is pointed but not overwhelming in size. This tops a row of small neat buttons that loop to close through fabric toggles. It is cut to slightly curve in at the waist and then gently flare out to the hem. Two decorative toggle buttons sit at the back to carry the design through. I love how the pockets that sit on each hip are hidden along one of those angled seams. Very chic and very couture in feel. Excellent condition with a very minor note below.

Fully lined in a matching colored silk. Buttons to close at the front with decorative buttons at the back. Hand finished throughout. The color is a more true camel in person. There is very minor chipping to the buttons edges at the back (please see photo after the label shot), but otherwise looks to have been worn very little, if at all. The easy cut will fit a variety of sizes. Tagged a Courreges B
