Vintage 1972 Geoffrey Beene Documented Checkered Wool Double-Breasted Mod Coat

About the Item

Incredibly chic Geoffrey Beene couture black and creme checkered wool coat dating back to his 1972 fall/winter collection. Geoffrey Beene made strong impressions with his courteous manner as well as his highly original style. He was a champion of minimalist design. His body-contoured clothes were marvels of cut and proportion. Beene’s view of style was more about function than fad. His clothes were structured but never rigid and rely on the craftsmanship of careful detail. This timeless winter coat is a beautiful example of his genius. Gorgeous double-breasted bodice with over-sized round and notched lapels. I love the lean, long sleeves with dramatic wide cuffs. This figure flattering garment skims the hip with a classic a-line silhouette. This is the type of garment you will reach for over and over. A real treasure and one of the best constructed coats I have seen. Measurements Bust: 38 inches Hips: up to 46 inches Sleeve Length: 24 inches Total Length: 42 inches This vintage Geoffrey Beene designer coat is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Freshly dry-cleaned. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.

    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    This ultra-chic early 1970's Harella of England maxi coat will make any woman shine during cold months ahead. The fabric itself is gorgeous; vibrant teal blue-green midweight cotton-velvet.

Complete with a back mock-belt and hidden pockets. The mark of a truly fashionable garment is that it remains current event 50 years later, as does this statement coat...

  • 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."
