Breathtaking ivory silk-crepe embroidered Chinese couture reversible coat dating back to the mid 1920's. The colorful novelty scenic embroidery adds a perfect amount of drama to this luxury treasure. I love the over-sized collar and brass ball buttons. Believe it or not, this amazing garment is completely reversible with a genuine rabbit-fur option. Extravagant garments from the 1920's are difficult to find, especially with unique construction. Evening wear from the flapper era remain a perennial favorite, perhaps because no other period combined opulence with such youthful flair. The free-size silhouette embodies the flapper's "party till dawn" attitude while the luxurious fabrics whisper "wealth and status." The mark of a truly fashionable garment is that it remains stylish and timeless 90 years later, as does this sumptuous couture piece. The pictures say it all.
