Amazing bright orange Bonnie Cashin canvas and leather coat and skirt ensemble! The skirt is a classic A - line that falls around the knees, with a narrow waist band and light pleating. The jacket is knee - length, with a loose silhouette, rounded shoulders, long sleeves, and a removable hood! The coat features four classic Cashin turnlock as closures down the front. The coat is lined in orange faux fur that adds some fantastic functional flashiness, and includes an oversized change purse on the right breast of the coat. The coin purse's kiss lock is typical of Cashin's 1960s handbag designs, however its rare to find such a detail included in her garments!
Wonderful deep chocolate brown feathered Mink cape by Arnold Liebes. The cape is hip length, with a straight collar, and fastens at the neck with a grosgrain rope with AMAZING swirling polished bakelite acorn - like aglets. The cape is lined in black silk with a subtle floral pattern. Perfection.
