1940s Gilbert Adrian Blush Pink Wool Coat

Gilbert Adrian


Gilbert Adrian, one of the most coveted and collectible Fashion Designer's of the early 20th century, designed costumes for early American Hollywood Studios and Starlets. He dressed stars such as Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, and Gene Harlow to name a few, and created costumes for movies as varied as Anna Karenina to the Wizard of Oz. Very few of his pieces come up for acquisition, and even fewer, such as this coat, are sold in perfectly wearable condition. The coat came perfectly stored from a Houston oil heiress. Adrian sold custom designed pieces for specific boutiques and individuals as well. Made in the 1940's of wonderful wool herringbone fabric, the coat has four working pockets, with two that have decorative flaps with buttons. There is a buttoned flap at each shoulder as decoration. Fully lined in silk.
