Extremely RARE and couture late 1940s coat from the French design house of Balenciaga. Est 1948 design, one of Cristóbal Balenciaga’s designs of the New Look silhouette. Gorgeous and elegantly structured, the inside is just as stunning as the outside. Hip material inside lining to give a full hip to that New Look silhouette. Hand stitched collar, hand stitched label in the signature BALENCIAGA lining. Heavy black textured cord cotton with a lovely silk lining. Large front square pockets on the full skirt of the jacket. Long sleeves, fully lined. Double breasted with 1940s Glass Buttons. I don’t believe the buttons to be original, but they are of that era.

This is a very rare piece as only one other of Balenciaga’s New Look coats were found to have been sold on Auction for 17k. I have had two researchers look into this piece and it is original, a true collectors piece. Perfect for a Museum or a High fashion collector. The price is final & form for this one of a kind exquisite piece.

Brand: Balenciaga
Condition: Amazing vintage condition. No holes, no stains, no open seams. Collar was hand stitched, inside lining is intact with only one pin hole found, label is a bit faded from storage, and from what the researchers suggested the glass buttons do not seem to be original but of the same era. One 1.5” repair under left bottom button. A few loose threads here and there. I have cleaned this by a professional dry cleaner, and it is ready to wear.
