1949 Traina-Norell Couture Vogue Documented Metallic Gold Silk & Mink Swing Coat

About the Item

A well-documented and totally timeless Traina-Norell for I.Magnin metallic gold silk and mink fur voluminous swing coat dating back to their 1949 fall/winter couture collection. Fashioned in shimmering metallic gold print lamé silk brocade and luxurious mid-weight silk velvet, this rare garment exemplifies their signature blend of high-level quality with quintessential American style; elegant in its simplicity. As shown, this iconic garment was featured in an issue of Vogue magazine from the same year. The voluminous swing silhouette is so well executed and really highlights that sparkling metallic gold fabric. There is an optional front neck hook-closure which I personally love closed. Fully lined in sensational chocolate brown silk-velvet which matches the mink fur wonderfully. I adore the cropped sleeve length and effortlessness of this couture masterpiece. For those not familiar with these mid-century American designers, you may be surprised to learn of their enduring influence on, and remarkable contributions to American fashion and glamour. Norman Norell especially, in his extensive and versatile body of work, employed the finest couture techniques, making his clothes still the envy of modern designers. A museum worthy piece of wearable art. Measurements Bust: 32-36 inches Waist: Free Hips: Free Sleeve Length: 20 inches Total Length: 46 inches Shoulder to Shoulder: 15 inches This Traina-Norell documented designer coat is in beautiful museum worthy condition with no stains, holes, fade or alternations. A wearable investment piece that will only go up in value.
