1960s James Galanos Formal Silk Opera Coat in a Black and White Floral
This is an incredible silk satin opera coat. The silk is white with a black and gray floral design. Raglan style sleeves are shorter in length to show off your opera gloves. Three large buttons down the front are black with mother of pearl centers The buttons end near the waist leaving bottom of the coat open, this creates a lot of movement as you walk. A dramatic, statement piece, great for any formal occasion. This coat does have a few small things I need to mention, none of them affect the overall look or wearability of this piece. There is a very faint pink line near the crease of the collar on the wearers left. There is a 3mm wear spot on the very edge of the left sleeve. There is a palm size section at the hem of the skirt that is slightly off white, likely from where the hem got wet. These are all subtle issues that are difficult to find even when looking for them, but on a piece of this caliber must be noted. Price reflects issues noted.
