1970s Mark Russell black velvet dramatic collar flared sleeve maxi evening coat
A stunning vampy 1970s floor length eveing coat in inky black velvet, from Mark Russel late. Nicely tailored, with black and gold button fastening, the sleeves are bracelet length and flared from the elbow. Deep back vent, belt not included
14.5" between shoulder seams, fairly narrow
Chest of garment 36"
Waist of garment 31", with belt loops to accommodate a wide belt here so likely designed to be worn drawn in a little
Mid shoulder to hem 53"
16" sleeve length from underarm
In excellent condition, there's a small area to the front of the velvet which is very slightly paler in some lights as though from colour transfer? Speckles of white at edge, odd depression in the velvet but nothing to detract from the impact of the piece!
