1960s Bill Blass Floral Coat

About

This is a brightly-hued floral coat by designer Bill Blass from the beginning of his career at Maurice Rentner. In true 1960s technicolor, this swing coat has all the charm and exuberance of the decade. The coat has classic mod styling, with a gently fitted bodice, flared princess-line silhouette, jewel standup collar, and buttoned sleeves. The single-breasted front closure and the sleeve cuffs are dotted with faceted crystal buttons, within which every shade of the rainbow is reflected. Of course the true draw of the coat is its wonderful colours: deep fuchsia, bubblegum pink, carmine red, pumpkin orange, soft lavender, and muted purple-grey create the oversized pattern of exotic, graphic flowers. This coat is charming and flattering, and will bring a dash of tropical warmth and cheer to the colder months.
