Vintage Dejac Paris Ladies Long Coat Wool Blend Size Large
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a beautiful quality long coat made by Parisian fashion design house Dejac. Dejac was founded in 1973 and closed its doors in 1997. It had a target market of women who wore classic fashion of high quality. Their clothes had a medium high price point - they were sold in the same boutiques that would sell Dior, Gucci and Chanel. This long coat has beautiful lines, as you would expect from a designer coat. It has a single button closure at the neckline that is one of a pair - otherwise this long coat remains closed by virtue of the overlap and the full cut of the coat. This long coat is cut with a flare to the hemline, so the coat falls in drapes. There is a large patch pocket affixed to either side. The coat is fully lined in blue satin.
Label: Dejac Paris.
Retailer label: Lily Simon Boutique Montreal Fabriqué en France. Lily Simon had a couple of designer fashion boutiques in Montreal. She sold only high end Paris fashion
Fabric: The content label is missing on this long coat, but I would think that this is a wool and cashmere or wool, mohair and alpaca blend in a lovely tone of blue. Dejac liked to use quality blends of wool, cashmere, mohair and alpaca in different proportions. Very soft, and definitely a quality fabric.
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a large size - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the thickness of the fabric into consideration:
Shoulders: 22” across seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 21” long - note the dropped shoulder
Sleeve Inseam: 13” long
Bust: 46” around, taken under the arms, with a normal overlap at the opening
Waist: 50” around
Hemline: 62” around
Condition: This long coat is in very clean condition but has three or so surface nibbles, two at the right back shoulder (see last close-up photo) and another down the back, all difficult to notice as the fabric has a lovely nappe (finish) - other than the surface nibbles, this long coat looks to have seen little use and was well cared for over the last 30 or so years.
This is a beautiful long coat, classic style, attractive colour and lovely quality fabric - sold at a very reasonable price due to the small defects…..
