1950s Jacques Heim "Jeunes Filles" Unusual Pocket Coat

Jacque Heim opened his couture house in 1930 and by 1936 had added the "Heim Jeunes Filles" line to the atelier - a line for the daughters of his clients and younger women who were not quite ready or able to buy couture. The pieces were made in the atelier alongside the Haute Couture and were very well made. Here we have a wonderful wool coat in a deep olive that has fantastic lines. It is cut with a rounded shoulder and straight wide cut sleeves. The wide straight cut is carried through the body of the coat and I love the double row of large buttons that run down the front and give it a touch a military feel. It is those fabulously cut pockets that are the real star of the show though. Each sit on the hip and are curved and slightly poufed out from the body of the coat. They are stunning and it is this little couture touch of high glamour that instantly lets you know that a true masters hand was at play in the design of this coat. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in an early rust colored silky rayon and the lining is hand set. It buttons down the front as shown.
