This promenade coat of 1890-1900-ies has all the features of the late Victorian fashion: elegantly elongated proportions, leg o'mutton sleeves, high low hemline and an S-shaped silhouette that draws attention to the enchanting female curves. The front part retains the classic surtout silhouette, enhanced by longitudinal lines and exclusive wide trim with Art Nouveau floral motives. Back part is quite different: seamed waist with a waterfall of folds and architectural embroidered half-belt. The hemline goes down in a smooth arc. Expressive cut refers to the gobletlike silhouettes of the era.
Collar trimming has subtle amethyst hue resembling a steel blue mink fur. The coat fastens with a number of wool-covered buttons and handmade woolen loops. They hint at a hussar uniform and relate the times when the elements of the Austro-Hungarian and Russian costume first became widespread in Western Europe.
Leg o'mutton set-in sleeves are extremely wide over the upper arm and narrowed from the elbow to the wrist. Such a cut visually expands the shoulder line contrasting with a narrow waist.
We feel most proud of an Iris image hand-embroidered on the back in mixed media technique. The flower which came to represent a great nation for hundreds of years as fleur-de-lis. It takes 15-20 working days of the professional embroiderer to produce this work of art, using the satin stitch, braid stitch, stem stitch and decorative herringbone stitch. Threads shades were picked out with the perfectionism natural to us, that's why there is the sole color combination available.
Please note, this listing is for the coat only; corresponding toque hat and muff can be purchased separately.
