Circa 1920/1930 French Haute Couture Rare Haute Couture coat or kaftan of evening / interior labelled by Chéruit Wormser and Boulanger, 21 place Vendôme Paris. Black wool serge decorated with white and black embroidered seems . Opening under the armpits and split on the side in the very same way of the eastern kaftans. Fastening on the front with the possibility of folding down the two panels to close the coat. Tightened at the waist by a wide belt, sewn in the center of the back, embroidered with black silk threads and attached by two buttons. Bust lining in cream silk pongee. Good condition and color. Dimensions: equivalent of a french 38 size. You will not find more prestigious label in the early 1920s in Paris for this couture House which will be occupied by Schiaparelli later in 1935. The double function of interior and / or evening coat is a constant in the history of fashion. A trend that will vanish in the 1950s. This coat represents the Parisian chic vision of oriental fashion that was very much in vogue between the two World Wars, mostly in the society balls organized by Paul Poiret. Rare item !
