This is an incredible gold, ivory and pink vintage Birjand Gunit beaded evening coat from the 1980's. It is similar in style to the fabulous beaded coats that flappers wore in the 1920's. Even the swirls, flowers and golden beading is reminiscent of the roaring 20's!
This coat has tons of detailed beading, dolman sleeves and shoulder pads. It has rayon lining and measures 39" long from the nape of the neck. 58" circumference so one size fits most.
There is only very minor bead loss found - mainly in a few spots under the arms, otherwise excellent condition.
This coat is a great piece to mix with something modern in your closet to get that runway look inspired by Alessandro Michele at Gucci. Mix the beaded texture on the smooth silk with something sturdier like denim or wool to make the outfit more up to date! The key to a successful ensemble is to use high quality pieces that are made well with luxe, natural fibers. The mistake people make is to try to get the look with cheaply made garments or those made of man made materials. That's where vintage pieces can really add depth to your wardrobe! You can buy couture quality clothing at a fraction of the cost of what you have to pay today, and mix it with things you already own! Most importantly, have fun and experiment with different combinations until you find your own voice!
