Hattie Carnegie Black Silk Coat


Stunning example of the American "New Look" trend in fashion that followed WWII.  Ultra feminine, showing the definite romantic influence of the Victorian Revival in fashion of the late 1940's and early 1950's. Pure black SILk faille with a wonderful look and weight.  Wasp waist, nipped in nicely, soft rounded shoulders. FULL FULL SWING of 130" to the skirt. FANTASTIC treatment on the BIG side pockets, hand embroidery and trim of black silk braid and soutache ribbon, reminiscent of the Victorian coats and dresses with their passementerie trimmings. Lots of princess lined gores and seams for a curvy silhouette, collar can be worn up or down, and has attractive pointed ends, full length sleeves with full cut shoulders and slightly turned back small cuffs. Real abalone pearly shell buttons, fully lined in black silk sateen.
