Vintage 1963 Lilli-Ann Cream Mohair Rhinestone Beaded Tie-Collar Swing Coat

About the Item

An absolutely gorgeous Lilli-Ann designer coat dating back to their documented 1963 fall-winter collection. Lilli Ann was started in San Francisco in 1933 by Adolph Schuman, naming his company for his wife, Lillian. The company became known for their beautiful, elaborately designed suits and coats. This stunning garment is fashioned in a soft fully-lined cream imported mohair wool. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; almost having a 3-dimensional feel. The construction is impeccable and has the type of seamed pattern work that one rarely sees today. The bodice has an amazing large ascot-tie collar decorated with sparkling studded rhinestones and beaded jewels. I love those 3/4 cropped sleeves! The swing skirt finishes the coat with that perfect vintage vibe. This exquisite Lilli-Ann will definitely make any woman shine during the upcoming cold winter months! Measurements Bust: 40 inches inches Waist: Free Sweep Hips: Free Sweep Sleeve Length: 16 inches Total Length: 40 inches This Lilli-Ann designer garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Lots of wonderful detail and immaculate seaming. Only sign of age is a few missing beads which is not noticeable when worn. This coat is over 60 years old and is truly stunning.

  • Vintage 1989 Yves Saint Laurent Leopard Print Cotton Twill Trench Jacket w/Tags
    By Yves Saint Laurent
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    Chic Yves Saint Laurent leopard print cotton-twill trench jacket from the infamous Rive Gauche collection during spring-summer of 1989. Pieces from this collection are very rare and are true examples of fashion history. I adore the cuffed-sleeves and front duel pockets. The jacket features hidden buttons and a sexy back-slit. It is wearable and comfortable, yet has its own iconic elements. The best part of all is, the trench is in mint never worn condition! "In the mid-1970s the relevance of haute couture was seriously debated. The political and social upheaval of the 1960s, the emergence of a plethora of creative ready-to-wear designers, and the increasing preference for a sportswear approach to dressing as represented by American fashion were among the shifts in lifestyles and taste that appeared to sound the death knell of the calcified and elitist world of the maisons de couture. It was at this time that Yves Saint Laurent, haute couture’s preeminent practitioner, threw caution to the prevailing winds with a collection of unrivaled fantasy and luxury."

  • Vintage 1969 Thea Porter Couture Rare 'Samawa' Embroidered Wool Documented Coat
    By Thea Porter Couture, Thea Porter
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    An ultra rare and highly coveted Thea Porter Couture ‘Samawa’ colorful woven wool coat dating back to her fall-winter 1969 collection. An example of this gorgeous garment can be found in the book 'Thea Porter: Bohemian Chic' by Laura McLaws Helms and Venetia Porter on page 60. This is a such a unique and truly iconic piece within her body of work. I adore the vibrant abstract natural yarn pattern work, which was inspired by Iraqi 'Samawa' carpets, as well as the side hemline slits that reveal a luxurious black satin lining. The rabbit fur trim is so incredibly soft and the zip-up front closure makes this piece so wearable. An almost identical coat was even featured in British Vogue's Fall 1970 issue, shot by the famous Barry Lategan. During this period, Thea Porter's clothing attracted many celebrity customers who enjoyed wearing her erotic creations whose secret was to conceal rather than reveal. Her clients, some of whom also became her friends, included Lauren Bacall, Bianca Jagger, Mick Jagger, Sharon Tate, Elizabeth Taylor, and Pete Townshend. This magical garment originally sold at Giorgio’s of Beverly Hills which is less than a mile away from our boutique! A truly important museum worthy coat by the queen of the bohemian fashion...
