60s Black Evening Coat Rhinestone Buttons
This 60s Black Evening Coat dazzles with 4 rhinestone buttons. Textured black fabric creates a simple A line silhouette. Glove sleeves identify this coat as mod 60s. The collar flips back and flattens making a conventional lapel or wears upright. Four matching buttons offer versatility. Matching black satin lines the coat. Two vertical slat pockets position in the front.
Flat the coat measures 22″ from armhole to armhole which flares slightly to 25″ at the bottom. The glove sleeves measure 18″ outer/8″ inner seams.
The label Robert Knox Laird Knox New York elevates this coat to designer status. Part of a renowned group of fashion designers, Robert Knox brought Parisian couture to New York.
His designs sold at high end department stores like Bonwit Teller and Bergdorf Goodman. “His clothes were elegant, sophisticated and well‐made,” said Julia Trissell, a Bergdorf Goodman executive who followed Mr. Knox’s career for 36 years. “He had beautiful taste,” she added.
This coat does not display a department store label; however, the classic beauty of the coat represents high end taste. I would not be surprised if this coat populated the floors of such stores.
Excellent condition with little to no wear.
