Vintage 1980s Weill Paris Coat Wool and Mohair Ladies Size L
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.
Material: 66% wool / 30% mohair / 4% polyamide
