1970s Valentino Plaid Swing Coat

A fantastic swing coat by Valentino in a bright and colorful mix of colors done in a over-sized plaid. I love the red lining that gives another bright flash of color when you move. The coat itself is made of a lightweight wool that is very comfortable to wear. The cut is a play on the loose sculptural styles of the fifties with lots of volume. The collar is bold and pointed and each sleeve is finished with a simple hem and left wide. All the volume comes out from the shoulder and when on creates the most dramatic silhouette! Huge front pockets sit on either side with big flap detailing. It is exception and wonderfully made and finished! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Sleeves: 22"
Shoulders: 17" across
Bust: to 27" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: open
Hips: open
Length: 38" from neck to hem

The cut is very forgiving - my mannequin is a size 4-6 and it is not pinned on her. It will easily work as an over-sized garment on a smaller girl and work equally well on a larger frame. Fully lined in a so;id red fine wool with no closures and big front flap pockets.

Modern Sizing equivalent: SML-MED-LRG (6-12)
