1940's Irene Black & White Deco Pinstripe Wool-Gabardine Crombie Jacket Coat


Irene Lentz stunned the world in the 1930's, 40's and 50's with her ingeniously constructed, sophisticated, couture-standard garments. After charming Los Angeles society and celestial celebrities with her jaw-dropping custom work at Bullock’s Wilshire, the designer was plucked to helm the illustrious glamour factory of stunning costumes at MGM Studios. The two time Academy Award nominated Irene is best known for her work with Silver Screen Legends Marlene Dietrich, Ingrid Bergman, Lana Turner, Ginger Rogers, and Doris Day. Desiring to offer her designs to women off the screen, she founded the manufacturing company Irene, Inc. with investment support from twenty-five of the nation’s leading department stores. This breathtaking black and white wool-gabardine crombie jacket is a perfect example of her genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; vertical woven fabric that seems to have an almost 3-dimension deco feel without being stiff or heavy. The construction is impeccable and has the type of seamed pattern work that one rarely sees today. The jacket has a dramatic wide collar and side-pockets. A true collectible and definitive piece of "Old Hollywood" fashion history. Measurements Bust:40-41 inches Hips:up to 44 inches Sleeve Length:24 inches Total Length:38 inches This Irene Lentz Couture designer garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working original buttons and full lining. This jacket is over 60 years old and is truly stunning!
