About

For over forty years Valentino has been one of the most prominent names in fashion, creating some of the world's most elegant and classic designs. It was Valentino's desire to design clothes that would celebrate the female form and accentuate a woman's sensuality. "I don't think any man in the world wants to go out with a woman dressed like a boy," he once said. This stunning rich forest-green coat is a perfect example of his vision. The garment is fashioned from mid-weight luxurious wool. He then uses an ingenious inverted-pleat construction throughout which creates to much depth and texture. The bodice has a gorgeous mod military style pointed-collar and long,lean sleeves. I love the over-sized dramatic front pockets! The a-line construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. Valentino has dressed some of the world's most glamorous people, including Princess Margaret, Julia Roberts and Claudia Schiffer. I totally see this rare couture show-stopper lighting up any chilly day!
