Label: Courreges Paris Made in France. Andre Courreges is a legendary Parisian fashion designer, known for his avant garde "space age" design during the 1960s, and his innovative, "fresh" looking designs through the 70s.
Description: This is a wonderful cotton raincoat featuring simple, yet modern, lines. The coat has a high set narrow collar and closes down the front with six plastic buttons. There is a large rectangular button at either side, each diagonally cut at the top with a button down tab closure. The upper back has a looped tab that I assume is meant to accommodate a scarf while the lower back has a 19 1/2" center kick pleat/vent. The sleeves are made in an above the wrist length so that you can expose the gloves that you are wearing and they cinch at the cuff with a button and tab. The piece is fully lined in a tan acetate fabric that is woven throughout with the Courreges logo.
Material: 100% Cotton (?)(content label illegible) with a 100% Acetate lining
Sizing: Size 000 is indicated, which is the Courreges size code - the lady from whom this was acquired normally wore a size 4/6, but the measurements appear to be a little larger, so please note the following measurements for fit, allowing for the style of the garment (your body measurements should be smaller, or measure a similar garment that you own):
Shoulders: 16" across from shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Sleeves: 18" long from the shoulder seam
Sleeve inseam: 13 1/2"
Bust: 37" around
Waist: 37" around
Length: 38 1/2" long, measured flat
It is in very good pre-owned condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odors. The garment was just dry cleaned and under close inspection, I found one very light gray streak to the back of the right sleeve, a pinhead light gray mark to the left pocket and two pinprick black marks to the back, near the vent. These marks are really minor and mentioned only in the interest of full disclosure. The garment is not crisp, like a new coat, but certainly is in very good, wearable, condition.
This is a very nice piece of Courreges - avant-garde 70s styling, very sophisticated at a very reasonable price.....
