Vintage Danish Faux Fur Coat 1970s Mugge Kolpin Design Gunnar Knudsen Ladies S
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a fabulous vintage faux fur coat designed by Mugge Kølpin and made in Denmark by Gunnar Knudsen of Aarhus. Mugge Kølpin was a well-known Danish designer who established her design business in 1964 and was a design contemporary to, and friends with, another well-known Danish fashion designer, Margit Brandt. The coat is made with a long haired acrylic pile fabric meant to replicate Mongolian lamb - it almost looks Sasquatch-like, but is quite amazing. The coat is made with an attached hood. It closes with four wood pegs and rope loops. The coat is lined in multi-coloured paisley printed goldenrod coloured cotton fabric. I would date it to the early 1970s.
Label: Mugge Kølpin Design Produced by Gunnar Knudsen Aarhus Denmark. The neck label reads “Made in Denmark”.
