If you were an "It Girl" in London during the 1960's and 1970's, Biba is where you would have shopped. This beautiful black maxi trench coat is a perfect example of the brand's genius. It is fashioned from soft velvet with all the classic hallmarks of Biba's best- the skinny high capped shoulders, lean sleeves and dramatic wide-scale collar. My favorite detail is the chic built-in waist belt. The silhouette really channels that 1930's femme-fatale look Biba's founder, Barbara Hulanicki, loved so much. One of the most unique and interesting Bibas I have ever seen.
