Vintage 1969 Mila Schön Italian Couture Black Purple Wool Mod Target Coat Dress

About the Item

An important and truly stunning Mila Schön Couture black and purple mod coat dress dating back to her 1968-69 fall/winter collection. She was living in Milan with her husband when she decided to enter the world of Italian fashion. This charming and elegant lady of aristocratic origins had no cutting or sewing experience but in 1958, with a small group of able workers, she set up a workshop in via San Pietro all’Orto. The first soberly cut coats and dresses were produced and their refined touch was not missed by the elegant Milanese women. By the end of the decade, Mila Schön was offering dresses that were compared to works of art such as those by Josef Albers, Calder and Fontana. The new representative of the made-in-Italy played with geometric shapes and optical illusions, inlays of colors and precious materials, attractions and multiplications of images, always inspired by contemporary artists. The unique design on this dress takes its inspiration right out of mod subculture with its classic target applique pockets. The bodice has a chic graphic collar with lean, long tailored sleeves. The flattering A-line back pleat construction emphasizes a woman's gorgeous shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. Pieces like this are becoming harder and harder to find due to their historical value. A beautiful museum quality wearable treasure that every fashionista looks for. Measurements Bust: 38-39 inches Waist: 36 inches Hips: up to 44 inches Sleeve Length: 22 inches Total Length: 38 inches This Mila Schön iconic garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working front hidden metal-zipper. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value. Museum quality and a true rarity.

  • Vintage 1950's Madame Grès Haute Couture Sculpted Silk Back-Bow Dress & Jacket
    By Madame Gres
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    Gorgeous and incredibly rare Madame Grès haute couture sculpted black silk dress ensemble dating back to the early 1950's. Madame Grès felt that the true job of the couturier was not to create a name for one's self, as many designers do, but to pay rigorous attention to the clothing. This stunning set has so much detail, you can tell it was made with loving devotion. The alluring bodice has a low-cut scoop neck with flattering short sleeves. My favorite designer element is the dramatic back bow with chic cut-out. The matching jacket has a shawl-like front with a stunning cropped back. I'd wear the jacket alone with other looks for a unique bolero option. The sculpted panel style skirting ,which looks incredibly hard to mold, reads so fresh to the modern eye...
