Vintage 80s Dejac Paris Coat Blue Wool French Fashion Sz 38
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a beautiful quality Dejac Paris coat made by Dejac. Dejac was a Parisian fashion design house founded in 1973 - it 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 Dejac Paris coat is made in a loose fitting, relaxed style with wonderful draping due to the gusseted box pleat that runs down its back. It has slightly padded shoulders, single piece gusseted sleeves (full cut and an extension of the body of the coat with no seam) and a two button closure at the neckline - the rest of the coat has no closures and simply folds over. You can wear it unbuttoned so that there is a V neckline with wide collar and lapels. The collar can also be worn up to cover the neck and head. There is a slant pocket built into either side. This Dejac Paris coat is fully lined in black satin viscose. It is not thermal lined, so suitable for fall wear or mild winter climates.
