Minimalist 1960s Marty Modell Black Silk Jaquard Brocade Coat w Bow Detail

The construction on this coat is wonderful. The Marty Modell label was out of Switzerland and they produced well made higher end pieces that were sold in select salons around the world. They are very well made pieces and this one is a greta example of their work

The choice of the black silk jacquard fabric that the coat is made out of makes it very easy to wear for multiple occasions. It would have been considered a formal evening piece during its time period but now a modern girl could wear almost anything with it. It is made from a high end black silk brocade that has some weight and structure to it. This allows it to keep that wonderful shape that you see. The cut of the coat is very simple and elegant. The collar is high and neat and cut more on the wide side. This frames the face perfectly and gives it a bit of that Balenciaga funnel neck feel. Where it closes at the neck there is a small and neat flat bow for detailing and then there are two large fabric covered buttons under that. The sleeves are straight and end at the elbow for that perfect feel of this time period. Under the buttons the coat swings open and is quite wide and full by the time it reaches the hem. The photos don't quite convey the volume it has and the generous cut through the body. It will fall much much better on an actual person. It is very beautiful. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a fine black silk and closes with the two buttons at the front and two hidden snaps under the bow at the neck. It is a light-medium weight. Hand finished. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. The loose and easy cut should allow it to fit a range of sizes

Slightly dropped shoulders: 16"
Bust: to 22" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist-hips: open
Length: 44" from neck to hem
