Description

A rare vintage and collectors piece, this dramatic leather trench coat was designed by Gianni Versace and is possibly from his infamous Miss S&M collection, Autumn / Winter 1992/93. Leather tailoring was central to these early 1990s collections and Gianni extensively wore his own leather creations. The design of the label changed in 1991 and this short-lived version was not used for long after his death in 1997.

Tailored from incredibly butter-soft black calf leather, it is finished with many classic trench details - note the epaulettes, sleeve loops, storm flaps and rain guard at the rear. The brass-toned buttons are embossed with the brand's instantly-recognisable Medusa and Greek key logo which was notably used in the Autumn / Winter 1991 collection. The black satin lining is also detailed all-over with the brand's logo.

This piece has been lovingly cared for by its previous owner and is in excellent vintage condition with no issues. The leather is without fault - no fade, dents, rips etc. We note a little surface discoloration which has not gone through to the underside of the brass neck buckle. This can be seen on the close-up photo where we have lifted up the collar; it is minor in nature as it won't really be seen. The composition and size label was located in the right pocket but only a remnant remains. It is just enough to confirm the date window as early to mid 1990s. A true unisex piece, it will fit a variety of sizes up to a UK 14 or US 10 and has comfortably been tried on by all the Circa team where this coat is a lusted after favourite! Ed, who is a men's medium and 5ft 8in, said it was short in the arms for him so lucky for me or I would have lost it :-) Our model in the photos is a UK 8-10, US 4-6 and 5ft 11in (180cm) and this coat was a great fit on her.
