About

Almost monastic in its simplicity, this unique coat dress maintains its femininity via full length princess seams that accentuate curves and encourage the skirt to swirl around the legs. The contrasting white collar and cuffs impart a distinctly Parisian flavor, while lace appliqué details around the collar recall Valentino's recent designs. Acutely relevant despite its octogenarian age. Plush black velvet coat dress with contrasting white faille collar and cuffs. Dress features close fitting princess bodice and flared ankle-length skirt with curved pockets each side; collar features hand-tatted embroidery appliqué around full circumference.
