For those of you who love the 80s as much as I do for the versatility of garments and for reviving the Art Deco period, here is yet another incredible ART DECO inspired vintage long sweater coat in black and white from Italy in new, never worn condition.
Art Deco meets Avant Garde!
Created with a comfortable kimono (T shape) cut, the heavy sweater coat is a double knit, textured wool and mohair twith a swirly, Art Deco pattern with black trim and long shawl front. Simply gorgeous! With its art deco flapper flair, the coat will look stunning with a small velvet hat and just about any garments, from jeans to high boots or a mini dress underneath, belted or worn as such for a more elegant look. AND it is warm as well. The best of all worlds. Made in Italy and imported by yours truly, for
AGE: created in the mid 80s , the period of fashion unbridled excess, to emulate another lavish period in fashion history, the 1920s, with its kimono (almost minimalist) cut complemented by an elaborate pattern. The epitome of 80s avant garde style.
COLOR: black and white, appears at times, like it is an off white and grey combination due to the double knit.
FABRIC CONTENT: no label present, it is a mohair and wool combination. The "hairy" look indicates a high mohair content (or a Scottish hairy wool) and the black trims indicate a thick natural wool. The texture is further enhanced by the wavey knit, with an appearance of "crinkle". Hard to explain but the effect is marvellous. The sweater coat is quite substantial, and very warm without being excessively heavy.
SIZE: marked as M on a small attached label, it would fit many sizes I believe, due to the generous cut and the open front. It is meant to look opulent and casual. It will comfortably accommodate a bust up to max .44" maybe more (it is open). Length - 40". Sleeve length - 28" measured from the side of the tuxedo collar across shoulder to cuff.
CONDITION: while a true vintage, the sweater coat is brand new, never worn. Immaculately clean, no damage, odors, no fault at all! Imported, NEW, VINTAGE. Can't get better than that, I suppose.
It will carry you through the winter in style.
The coat will be shipped in box to preserve condition. While it will not be heavy, it is however substantial and requires a medium to larger box. Shipping cost adjusted accordingly. Can be combined preferably with smaller size other items for single parcel shipping.
