1950s Vintage Coat in Ice Blue Wool with Sheepskin Collar, UK10-12
A beautiful 1950s vintage coat in ice blue wool with palest beige shearling collar.

The owner remembers buying the coat from an upmarket vintage shop in Le Marais in Paris. The woman in the shop said that it came from a very stylish elderly woman who was selling off her collection. The seller had told her that the wool coat had been made in an atelier and that she had never worn it; and that the insignia on the lining was particular to a certain atelier but couldn't remember which one.
