1950's Schiaparelli Checkered Mink Fur Double-Breasted Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This "Schiaparelli-Paris" coat is both breathtaking and incredibly chic. The Italian-born French couturière Elsa Schiaparelli is best known for the iconoclastic bravado and unrestrained, at times brazen, originality of her work. A repertoire of inventive devices—experimental fabrics with pronounced textures, bold prints with unorthodox imagery, opulent embroideries and ornaments ranging from the whimsical to the bizarre—was her medium of creative expression. Schiaparelli fur garments were of the highest quality furs that one could buy in this era and graced the backs of starlets and society ladies. It is easy to see that level of quality in this piece- the fur is extremely supple and soft. The coat is pieced together in a checkerboard fashion which is so modern and unique. I love the double-breasted bodice and hidden side-pockets. Fabulous statement piece for the upcoming season.
