1970s Cashmere Halston Maxi or Coat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

If you watch my twitter feed that you might recognize this coat - I could not resist taking it for a spin when attended one of the Toronto Fashion week shows last week! It is an amazing piece that I styled as a long maxi coat. It was meant to be a maxi dress and works wonderfully as that as well but please buy knowing you can use it for either! It's all cashmere so it light and warm. The color is amazing - more of a coral than what has photoed and I love the subtle herringbone pattern that runs through it - really unusual even in his cashmere pieces. It buttons all the way down. I have shown it as it was meant to be worn - long and lean but you can also easily belt this. Versatile and beautiful it is an amazing and rare piece of fashion history and in excellent, museum quality condition.
