1950s Rich Gold Thread Silk Brocade "New Look" Coat

About

The fabric on this coat is amazing. The gold thread used is a real metallic thread and it is woven through the black base with different weaves to create the most wonderful effect and allow the rose pattern to feel like it is raised off the fabric. The thread used gives the exterior the feel of those real lame dresses from the twenties and this is obviously a high end fabric. Everything about this coat screams high end designer but sadly it was found without any labels at all so I think the girl that snatches it up is really getting a bargain. The cut is very structural with the Dior 'New Look" feel. I love the huge shawl collar and nipped in waist. Below this the skirt flares out dramatically with the volume required to top the full skirted cocktail dresses of this era. The fabric is a good solid weight - not so heavy that it is unwieldy to wear, but enough of a weight that when it is on the body, the shape you see is held perfectly. Each sleeve is cut on the wider side and it wraps and closes across the front. It is just spectacular and the simplicity of the cut only further highlights the drama of that rich, bold fabric. Even better in person. Excellent condition Intricately inter-lined in black silk and it closes with hidden fabric covered snaps at the front. The very occasional broken metal thread (the worst of which I photoed) but this is extremely minor and does not detract or mar the wearabilty. Sleeves: 21" approx. Shoulders: no defined seam Bust: 20" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: open Bodice: 15.5" from neck to waist Skirt: 28" from waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
