Description
This early vintage Chanel Mohair coat is the most perfect shade of seafoam green and cut in an elegant and gently flared silhouette. It features a high collar with bow detail at the neck, and fastens with a single button closure on the collar line to the left hand side. The interior is lined with matching green silk, with the exterior fabric made up of a lovely thick mohair. The coat falls in an A line shape to around knee length, and has two silk lined pockets on either side. With a lovely weight to it and in such an unusual colour, this would be a perfect addition to any seasonal wardrobe.

The 'Chanel Creations' label dates from after Mademoiselle Chanel passed away in 1971 when the couture house was led by a series of designers, including Pierre Cardin, before Karl Lagerfeld took the reins in 1983. In 1978 the label reverted to ready to wear; however, the construction of the coat is most definitely to haute couture standards and we can comfortably date to 1971 - 1977.

The coat is in excellent vintage condition, with no stains or faults to note. Its relaxed shape would fit a variety of sizes up to a 12 UK, or 8 US.
