Vintage 1980s Donnybrook Faces Faux Fur Coat Flapper Girls Acrylic Pile Novelty Print
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage 1980s faces novelty print faux fur coat made by US manufacturer Donnybrook. These Donnybrook novelty print faces coats gained renewed popularity about 4 years ago when Rihanna was spotted wearing one - a different design, but a very similar coat to this one. This coat features 1920s flapper girls heads, which appears to be a harder to find design than the one that Rihanna was wearing (see final photo). The coat has padded shoulders, dropped sleeves and shawl collar. It is cut away at the front opening bottom and does up with a single button at the waist. The sleeves have a slight batwing form with cuffs that can be worn turned (I have them posed unturned in my photos). There is a slash pocket built into either side. The coat is lined in black satin acetate.
Label: Donnybrook Made in U.S.A. The Donnybrook label was owned by the Levy Group, which owns a number of other popular fashion labels, including Buffalo, Perry Ellis, Betsey Johnson, Vera Wang amongst others.
Material: Acrylic pile
Sizing: Size S for small is indicated, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the thickness of the fabric into account as well as the oversized 80s styling, it would fit someone larger than what we usually think of as small.
Shoulders: 27” across seam-to-seam (note that the sleeves are dropped, so part of the shoulder measurement includes the upper sleeve)
Sleeves: 23” long with the cuffs unturned and 20” long with the cuffs turned
Sleeve Inseam: 22” with the cuffs unturned and 19” long with the cuffs turned
Bust: 52” around, taken under the arms - note that the sleeve is cut wide where it joins the body
Waist: 47” around

Condition: It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, staining or odor. The coat looks like it saw little use and was well stored over the years.
This is a wonderful 80s period coat - the print is really fabulous and the coat is of very nice quality.......sure to be noticed!
