Designer, Helga: Mohair coat in a gorgeous shade of pink, just in time to add a refreshing addition to your spring wardrobe.
Button up front, side slit pockets. Lined with I believe acetate lining, this is a comfortable lighter weight warmth, not heavy like wool.
About the Designer: Helga was established in 1947 by Robert Oppenheimer and his wife Helga Kallman Oppenheimer. Robert managed the business while Helga designed the evening wear and better suits and dresses for which the company became known. Based first in San Francisco but moving to Los Angeles in the early 1950s, the company was somewhat of an oddity in that most California clothing companies were producers of sportswear.
The Oppenheimers were known for their collection of modern art, which they donated to the Hammer Museum of UCLA. As they traveled Europe on fabric buying trips, they also accumulated the works of the modern masters. The business closed in 1986 when Robert Oppenheimer retired.
I found a white mohair Helga coat for sale online for more that $400.00
CLEARANCE-Price reflects more than $35.00 discount of my original price


Coat is pre-owned and the only tags it has read, Helga and professional dry clean only, so, no size. I would say approx. a womens 8 to give you an idea, and perhaps a petite as the sleeves seem a wee bit short on a couple of us here that tried it on for sizing, unless that is just the style. (see 2nd pic.)
Please do let the measurements guide you though by comparing them to your own garment.
Flat one side measures across from pit to pit 19" , at waist 20" and length is 39" . Outside shoulder to cuff is 22",and pit to cuff 15"
