$350.00

Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful quality wool and mohair coat made by Weill Paris.  Weill is a Parisian institution, founded in 1892 by Albert Weill, and considered to be the oldest French fashion house in existence.  The coat features quite a dramatic silhouette, with wide shoulders that extend out to the sleeve caps and a wide profile, in keeping with 1980s design aesthetics.  The sleeve caps are gathered in pleats and the sleeves taper to the cuff.  The coat has a small shirt-type collar and closes at the front with four large plastic buttons.  There is a slit pocket at either side.  The coat is lined in black acetate.  The exterior is woven in a broad check in colours of purple and blue against black.
