Vintage Black/White Sequined Coat Boutique By Miss Ruth 38-34 Provenance
This well made and fabulous double breasted vintage jacket is of solid sequins in black and white, and has an almost "wet-look " due to the way the sequins are applied. The diagonal pattern and quasi- military style make this perfect addition to your fashion collection, and is versatile enough to go from topping a great pair of jeans to sensationalizing your little black cocktail dress. It has sequin covered buttons which actually close with snaps( 2buttons are applied on top, 2 actually button) , and is lined in what looks like parachute silk, but may be nylon. It has a Boutique by Miss Ruth label.
This is part of the estate of Sonja Loew, a Czech who married theater magnate E. M. Loew and was fabulous for her generosity, outrageous outfits, and indecipherable accent. She is sitting next to Zsa Zsa Gabor in this photo.
