Ultra timeless and very rare Bill Blass textured wool mod dress coat dating back to his 1965 fall-winter collection. Bill Blass emerged on the scene in the early 1960's when most people still thought Paris was the be-all and end-all of high fashion. His designs were chic, but also youthful, with a breezy energy. He transformed the first major fashion brand he worked for, Maurice Rentner, from a ladies-who-lunch label into something more fun and punchy. This amazing black and ivory textured wool dress coat is a perfect example of his talent. I love the satin bow-tie collar and duel skirt pockets! double-breasted bodice and side pockets. The a-line skirting is so flattering and easy-to-wear. An elegant look that is perfect for any modern event.
