Gorgeous Anne Klein floral wool tapestry coat dating back to her 1970 collection. Anne formed Anne Klein and Company in 1968 and the lion logo was immediately identified with the brand. In 1970, Saks Fifth Avenue in New York launched the Anne Klein Corner; it was the first designer in-store boutique. Anne received many awards throughout her career and was recognized as the epitome of designer sportswear. Harpers said that Anne was "one of the few people who really understand what the American woman wants and has the sense of style to produce it." She died suddenly in 1974 at the young age of 51. Donna Karan and Louis Dell'Olio were working at her firm, and they took over the design side of her company. This striking and hard to find beauty is a wonderful example of her talent. The fabric is a luxurious heavy-weight wool tapestry in the most stunning floral pattern of burnt-orange, ivory, brown and purple. The silhouette is beautifully cut to flatter the figure and closes with hidden front hood eye closures. I adore the lean, long sleeves and fringe style trimming. The coat like this must have taken days to complete. A timeless bohemian treasure that will be the statement piece for your vintage wardrobe.
