1960s Floral Block Print Swing Overcoat

This is a really unusual jacket of its time - an early ethnic style block print. We have only ever seen these duster coats as a solid colour and in a more formal style as part of dress suit. This design is very open and features a high button Peter Pan collar although the jacket has been photographed open. The fabric is like a lightweight composite blend - very possibly made up of wool and cotton. The block print is in warm earth tones - pinky reds and pale blues, greens and ochres. There are two deep front pockets and we love the way that they have lined up the pocket flap with the pattern so that they appear invisible when worn. The sleeves are gently tapered and the jacket has a a truly A-line look - so flattering when worn. This peice would look fantastic as a seasonal transition piece over informal wear such as jeans but could easily be worn as a more formal jacket due to the superb construction. The jacket is neatly lined in a peachy cream.

In absolutely beautiful vintage condition. The internal lining has one or two very minor and very small marks towards the bottom hem but these are inconsequential for a piece that is over 60 years old. They will never be seen and only mentioned for accuracy.

There are no makers labels but this is almost certainly made in America and of high quality manufacturing. It will fit a range of sizes up to UK 12 US 8.

Will you set anything aside for me before I come?

We are happy to find anything you may be interested in from our website - please let us know a week in advance. 

We also have an extensive offline collection. If you let us know your size, style, favourite colour to wear and perhaps your budget, we can browse through our archive in advance of your appointment. 

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Clients may wish to bring modern shapewear when trying on garments from certain eras, especially the 1950s. Vintage clothing was often worn with undergarments that shaped the waist and as such is tailored for them.

We have a huge variety of slip dresses and petticoats to complete your look; many of which are also for sale.

You may also wish to bring your favourite footwear. We often find a classic pair of nude shoes work well when trying on, or a pair in gold or silver.

Do you have a price range?

Many of our lower-priced pieces (under £150) are not available to buy online. Our prices range from £80 - £600 for separates. Dresses start at around £150 and go up to £2,500 for the very best antique pieces and designer vintage. Our bridalwear ranges from £300 - £3,000.
