"Clarette" Vintage 1940's Navy Blue Embellished Wool Jacket

This incredibly tailored navy blue wool silk lined 1940's jacket, is a rare piece to behold and never find again.

Her Peter Pan collar is embellished with an intricate pattern, made up of bugle beads, pearlised beads, silver glass rhinestones and zardosi stitches, surrounding small red velvet inserts. The collar is framed by a small cross over tie, that fastens with a metal press stud, and is in turn embellished with matching beadwork and velvet to each end. Her padded shoulders set off the full length cuff sleeves, embellished with beadwork and rhinestones to match the decorative neckline. Her elegant tailoring boasts a fitted cut, with matching covered button fastenings and a cinched in waistline, accented by two small front pockets just below.

Vintage garments have been previously worn and lovingly cared for, they may however have a blemish or two. Here at Willow Hilson, we try our very best to note all the details of each garment, although we may sometimes overlook things, which we do apologise for. Please do not expect perfection, unless stated so.

Please make sure you check all the measurements of the garment before purchasing. Vintage garment sizes are not the same as those of today.
