Givenchy Haute Couture Suede Coat

Surely Givenchy must have been influenced by the street fashions of the hippies in the early 1970's when he designed this unusual suede coat from the Haute Couture collections. Chamois colored suede appears to be laced together at the shoulders and the waistline. This lacing is repeated around the collarless neckline, on the front of the coat, at the hemline and on the sleeves. There are two pockets and they also have the lacing detail. A long flat belt is decorated with the lacing on both sides and has a generous fringe at each end. This is the ultimate in "rich hippie" fashion.

The coat is lined in a matching silk and the numbered couture label is at the center back. This highly unusual piece is in excellent condition, it is from the estate of a member of the International Best Dressed List and provenance will be provided.
