Incredible 1980s Thierry Mugler Cinched Waist Faux Fur Hooded Coat

This fabulous faux fur coat is a very rare piece indeed. It is a wonderful example of Thierry Mugler's work with its amazing over-sized hood and nipped in waist. The exaggerated narrowing of that cinched waist is made even more so by the curving line of the hips that flare out dramatically. The excess amount of fabric used n the lower part of the coat makes it even more dramatic and that combined with the thickness of the faux fur cause that flared out line to happen from every angle you see it from. The color is a very creamy ivory with a touch of a yellow tone to it depending on the light. There is a hidden snap under the belt at the front and another at the tip of one collar so you could potentially close it right up. The collar is wide and full and this extends out to a fabulous deep hood. The waist is cinched in with a faux leather belt with a silver colored metal buckle. This is an early foray by a high end designer into attempting to find a substitute for real fur and so has historical importance from that perspective as well. Excellent condition

Fully lined in an pale gold toned silky satin and has two hidden snaps at the front as described above. It then belts with the original accompanying belt. Pockets on each hip.
