Description: This coat came from Ilus Geiger's family, whose surname was Korda. I'm unsure if they were any relation to the director, however, they were in the film business from what I could make out. The coat is quite fabulous, featuring striking material, and styling that I would characterize as Hollywood glamour. The fabric is made of a metallic gold lame base that is woven with diagonal wool stripes in a gray color with color accents in violet, orange and white. The coat has a wide rounded collar with wide squared notched lapel. The coat closes with a single gold toned metal closure at the waist level. It is cut with a slight flare and is above the ankle length. It is fully lined in a violet colored rayon acetate lining.
Label: Ilus Geiger Beverly Hills California. Ilus Geiger is best known as the costume designer for the 1957 film "Cha Cha Cha Boom!", featuring Perez Prado, Helen Grayco and Sylvia Lewis.
