Sweet Disorder Vintage

1950s Red Velvet Ballon Sleeve Coat

Sold out

Vintage 1950s crimson velvet evening coat. Fabulous trapunto stitched collar and huge balloon sleeves. Swing style with a single button closure at the neckline. The button is carved lucite studded with rhinestones and perfectly accents the coat. Even the back of the collar is a fabulously considered shape. Coat is lightweight with no padding between the velvet and the lining. Lining is matching crimson red crepe. Label: Jays Boston. Excellent condition, only note a little foxing to the velvet on the front where there is an inside seam, probably the work of an overzealous dry cleaner (see photo). The coat appears to be inspired by a Balenciaga creation for AW 1950-51, now in the collection of the Met Museum. See photo below, and editorial photo of Davina in the Baleciaga coat.
