1968 Norman Norell Black Wool Over-Sized Collar Double Breasted Mod Coat
This chic Norman Norell coat, in a timeless black color, exemplifies his signature blend of couture level quality with quintessentially American style. This gorgeous garment, dating back to his 1967-68 fall winter collection, has the most flattering a-line silhouette with a bold double-breasted design. I love the over-sized wide collar and those lean, long sleeves with tons of buttons. As pointed out in the book "Couture: The Great Designers", Norell had a profound influence on the ready-to-wear industry and on younger American designers by insisting that off-the-rack clothing be as fine as made-to-order. The masterful design and superb quality of this garment more than meets his exacting standards. We added may pictures so you could enjoy and understand this wearable work of art.
