Constructed in a gorgeous shade of oatmeal wool the double-breasted coat features a double lapel collar and a half belt to the rear. The long sleeves and pockets to the hip make this a practical yet incredibly chic piece that will look contemporary for decades to come.

Cristobal Balenciaga was the man known as ‘the couturier’s couturier’ and referred to by Coco Chanel as simply ‘the Master’. His understanding of fabric, shape and the construction of clothing was without equal and this stunning coat is a superb example of Balenciaga when it was Signor Balenciaga himself at the helm.
