1960s Geoffrey Beene Pink and Plum Drop Shadow Pattern Coat


1960s Geoffrey Beene Pink and Plum Drop Shadow Pattern Coat is a classic wool coat with a Geoffrey Beene twist! The coat futures an interesting woven drop shadow pattern throughout and two slightly angled patch pockets all of which are fully lined with a magnificent silk. The sleeves fall just above the wrist and have a tapered fit. What better way to bring comfort and color into your Fall/ Winter wardrobe.
Geoffrey Beene began his career in the 1950s, designing under numerous New York houses including Teal Traina, finally opening his own label in 1963. Beene was incredibly conscious of the human body, and was particularly regardful of the figure in motion - as Beene once said“clothing is nothing until it hits the body." His designs were created to work with the client’s body, encasing it lightly and giving it a more artful structure. Beene's reinterpretations of dress formality, use of synthetics, and unusual combination of materials (accessories in acrylic and diamonds, for example), set him aside from his contemporaries who focused on the business of fashion, rather than the artistry of fashion.
