Incredible Dior "New Look" 1950s Velvet Opera Coat
This product is currently sold out.
Very rare 1950s velvet opera coat featuring a beautiful blush pink satin lining. This coat celebrates and perfectly compliments the full and dramatic flared shape of 1950s dresses and skirts. The cut on this opera coat is what really makes this coat. With dolman sleeves on the arms, and a heavy dramatic wide drape - there are yards of fabric on this coat that just ooze high style. Belt it over a full dress with an extra thick crinoline to get that classic Dior 'New Look' that was all the rage in the era. Or wear it loose and open as you sashay to the opera.
Era and style: 1950s/60s Dior New Look style
Label: Pasternak Made in Washington D.C.
Size: One size fits most
Bust (measured with the coat closed): 44"
Sleeve Length: 26"
Condition: Excellent vintage condition with some wear. There is staining on the lining (see close up). There is also a small 3/4" hole in the seam right on the right armpit seam. This isn't too noticeable (unless you lift your arm) and someone looks really close. The velvet is in fantastic shape and there are no holes or visible damage on the outside of the coat.
