1972 Halston Ultra Suede Trench Coat

A fabulous c.1972 ultra suede trench coat that is a beautiful deep raspberry color. These were THE thing to own in the 1970's - no one had seen this fabric before and they were all the rage! I love the that this one has such sleek lines and is so seventies in feel - the collar is bold and big and the cut long and lean. These can get stiff as they age but this one is still soft and supple. I love the longer length so it has that full on "spy" coat feel to it and the original belt allows you to cinch it in for shape. A sleek double row of buttons closes it and front pockets allow for the perfect cool girl slouch. I have included a photo of a similar one on Liza Minelli (on the right) in the Halston Studios in NYC in 1972. Excellent condition.
