Vintage Ghost London Quilted Velvet Coat Ladies Size M

by poppysvintageclothing.com

$ 195.00

  • Product Description

This is a vintage Ghost London quilted velvet coat - please read about Ghost London further down.  This velvet coat takes inspiration from 1930s fashion as did many of Ghost London’s creations.  It has a band collar, puff sleeves and closes with seven hidden shell buttons, almost a shame, as the buttons are very attractive, made of fan detailed shell.  The velvet fabric is quilted with starburst shapes throughout.  The velvet coat has a pocket at either side and is made in a knee length.  It is meant to be used as an evening coat, not for warmth against winter temperatures.

Label:  Ghost® Made in England.  Ghost was founded in 1984 by Tanya Sarne and designer Katharine Hamnett.  They used a team of young talented “ghost” designers to create their lines, and by 1996, were so successful that Liberty gave more floor space to Ghost than any other designer.  Controlling interest in the company was lost to an Icelandic investment group in 2005, inciting Sarne to resign.  The company went into receivership in 2008, but was revived, and has seen a renaissance of popularity in recent years. 

Colour:  Burgundy / Maroon 

Material label:   84% Viscose / 8% Polyester / 8% Silk

Sizing: The size label on this velvet coat reads M for medium, but please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  14 1/2” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam - note that your shoulder cap would fit into the cap of the sleeve

Sleeves:  27” long

Sleeve inseam: 16 3/4”

Bust: 40” around, taken under the arms

Waist:  42” around, with a normal overlap

Overall length: 41", measured flat

Condition: This velvet coat is in very good condition with no noted wear, tear, staining or odour.  The flap with the buttonholes is made of chiffon fabric, so may show if there is any “pull” across the fit - this coat was conceived and constructed that way. 

Earlier Ghost pieces like this velvet coat are going to be treasured collectibles - this excellent quality velvet coat will be a great addition to a collection!
