1960's Arnold Scaasi Elegant Ivory-Creme Silk Portrait-Collar Cape Jacket


In this gorgeous early 1960's "Scaasi" designer cape jacket, the detailed construction and meticulous attention to detail are comparable to what you will find in modern haute-couture. Arnold Scaasi was an acclaimed fashion designer who created garments for such notable personalities as Joan Crawford, Lauren Bacall and Elizabeth Taylor. I love the ivory-crème color and shocking psychedelic floral print lining. The dramatic portrait-collar frames the face so beautifully and I adore the side pockets.. As Scaasi himself once said, "If a woman wears a Scaasi creation, she'll be noticed; that's the kind of piece to make an entrance in. The garment will be flattering and make you feel good. That's the major thing, they should perk you up. They should uplift you, not just cover your body." Measurements Bust:Free Waist:Free Total Length:36 inches This vintage designer cape is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. This item is over 50 years old and is truly stunning!
