Silk velvet evening coat, c.1936

Made from luxurious silk velvet, the elegant velvet evening coat captures the glamour aesthetic of the 1930s. The collar is tightly pleated around the neck to stand up and frame the face. The leg-of-mutton sleeves are puffed at the top. The opulent burgundy hue gives our luxe coat an enduring significance and charm. Indeed, it is a coat with an "attitude," conveying both old money assurance and the confidence of supreme stylishness.

The coat is softly shaped with a fitted waist and slightly full skirt. The front opening, which closes with self covered buttons, forms a diagonal line from the collar to the waist.

The condition is almost excellent and wearable. The coat just shows gentle wear.

It measures: 38" bust, 32" waist, 44" hip, and 53" from the shoulder to the hem.
