Amazing Original Vintage 1940s 40s Red And Black Colour Block Swing Coat By Betty Rose
This amazing coat was made in the late 1940s from red wool gabardine with black accents at the collar, placket, pockets and cuffs. It’s utter colour block perfection! In classic Betty Rose style the coat features super strong padded shoulders and is cut in a loose fitting swing silhouette. The mock pockets have been highlighted with black accents and there are five beautiful dual black and red coloured fabric buttons below each pocket. The collar features a wonderful notched detail at the back and runs across almost all of the width of the shoulders. Inside, the coat is lined in black crepe and bears the collectible maker’s label for Betty Rose Fashions.
