Schiaparelli haute couture black coat, Autumn/Winter 1936

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


An incredibly rare piece of Schiaparelli haute couture, this coat is a fantastic piece of fashion history! Constructed from black Linton wool, the coat is sharply tailored with a double lapel collar embellished with blue and green sequins. A single fastening to the front creates a flattering A-line silhouette, while a contrasting lining in violet silk taffeta adds a flash of colour.
