For my last post, I had searched far and wide to locate the perfect quintessential princess coat with fur trim all around, but I had a lot of trouble finding one. I figured it was because they had recently been in high demand for Christmas and winter, but it is true that they are somewhat rare as well. I forgot, though, to look at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection, silly me! I stumbled upon this piece of theirs on Pinterest, and thought I would post it here so that we could all revel in it’s beauty. It is perhaps unwearable but still worth adoring!
Circa 1968, i.e. approaching the decade of the princess coat and was designed by Shannon Rodgers.
They also have a few other princess coats in their collection that are lot of fun to look at as well. Voila:
Circa 1955, Traina-Norell
Circa 1970, George Caplan
Circa 1970, Norman Norell
Circa 1967, Oscar de la Renta
Circa 1970, Arnold Scaasi
Circa 1970s, Yves Saint Laurent
