1940s Agnes - Drecoll Beaded Pompom Princess Coat - Rare

Agnes - Drecoll


Absolutely gorgeous! This black wool coat by Agnes - Drecoll hits just below the knee and has a fit and flare silhouette, giving the tea length dress a very feminine outline. The coat has a shawl - like collar, is double breasted and features buttons made of ribbons folded in the shape of roses. The pockets of the coat are accented by petal - shaped bead designs with added black pompoms. Gorgeous, feminine, and classic - we think it has a very Grace Kelly feel.

Agnes - Drecoll was a brand merger between Drecoll and Agnes in 1937. Drecoll was an existing Austrian couture house founded in 1904 that later merged with the Beers couture atelier in 1928. Agnes was created in 1898 by Mme Havet, a French Couturier who had worked under the tutelage of Jacques Doucet, designer and art collector. Agnes' successes include popularizing the turban after World War II, and having Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, and Alexandra Feodorovna, the last empress of Russia, as clients.
