Jacques Doucet, White Mousseline Evening Gown. Paris, 1900-1905.
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.
