Trigère wool coat , 1970s
Pauline Trigère had a unique mastery of draping wool fabrics. Her hands-on method of cutting directly from bolts of fabric enabled her to bring out the fluid drape in even the stiffest tweed. She was the first designer to champion the use of wool for evening wear. From the "master of cut," this classic coat has a streamlined architectural style. It is all about simplicity and clean lines.
The coat is fashioned from black wool and is lined with black satin. The collar/scarf is lined with black taffeta that also binds the edges. The coat closes in front with three finely tailored, self-bound button holes and large faceted black buttons. There are set-in pockets in the side seams. The cut is comfortable and roomy without appearing bulky. The fullness is neatly contained by the shoulder yoke.
The condition is excellent. It is clean and ready to wear.
The size is marked 10. It measures: 45" bust and waist, 48" hip, 16" from shoulder seam to shoulder seam, 23 1/2" sleeve length, and 44" from the shoulder to the hem.
