This wonderful coat was made from black wool in the 1970s. It was cut in a classically elegant fit and flare silhouette with soft shaped shoulders, a gently nipped waist and a flared skirt. The large notched lapel collar leads to six black buttons in a double breasted configuration that fasten the coat. A statement waist seam runs from each side of the coat all the way around the back, highlighting the shape of the garment. Below this seam darting gives a beautiful flare to the skirt that adds swish and movement. This is a truly classic piece that is very versatile and, for a practical feature, functional pockets have been hidden in the side seams. Inside, the coat is lined in sumptuous black satin and has a maker’s label for Ilie Wacs, a retailer’s label for Nieman Marcus and a Union tag.

Ilie Wacs was a Jewish born designer who spend most of his formative years in Shanghai before moving to the US after WW2. There he became known for soft and feminine coats and suits that appear custom-tailored. His pieces focused on shaping for true elegance and graced the pages of many fashion magazines including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times. Ilie Wacs was particularly known for his fitted or fit-and-flare coats in featuring clean lines and simple cuts and this coat is a perfect example of his signature style.
