Insight & Inspiration

This is a beautiful example of an authentically reproduced 1950s coat. It creates a perfect hourglass shape with its wide dolman sleeves, panelled waist and semi full skirt. The collar shape is taken from an original 1950s example and special thought has even been given to the beautiful black reproduction buttons.

Everything about this 1950s style princess coat is just stunning, including the fantastic forest green.

Detailed Description

If you've been to see the Dior exhibition at the V&A this summer then you are going to understand where the inspiration comes from for this fantastic 1950s coat.

When you think of the couture fashion house collections in the late forties and throughout the fifties you think of these elegant and stylish designs with stunning silhouettes. This coat has all of that!

Brooch, gloves etc. not included but all of these are available to buy in store.

That whole look from head to toe was just stunning. Don't worry we've got the hats, gloves, bags, scarves and shoes in store to complete your 1950s look but this coat is definitely a keeper. It's one you will enjoy for a very long time.

House of Foxy designer Claire went to great lengths to create an authentic reproduction 1950s style including the curved collar, the dolman sleeves and the shaped waist. Claire has gone the extra mile though with re reproduction buttons and nice details like the wing tipped cuff which could be turned up or down.

Yes it has pockets! Two in the front in vertical seams.Te fabric is an italian wool and the coat is fully lined.

Outer is 90% wool and 10% acrylic

Size & Fit Expertise

Dolman sleeves create a bit more room in the bust and the semi full skirt skims he hips. The waist is shaped and as such this is the measurement you should use to select your size so if you are in between measurements then size up. Definitely go up if you want to fit knitwear under the coat.
