Fabulous Vintage Cape Coat Black Velvet Unique 1970s One Size Provenance
This incredibly unique vintage coat has a timeless look- the front looks much like a 40s style with the attached cape like sleeve and back giving it its 70s flair.
The waist has double rows of wide elastic inside so it looks like a thick belt.
Front slash pockets and amazing black glass buttons that look like Victorian cut steel. Its lined in black satin and has a belt back inside to keep the coat wrapped around you.
Because of the cut it should fit almost any size up to a 14. Because of the cut it is nearly impossible to measure but the back length is 45".
This was custom made for 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. The corset was purchased from her estate.
