Selber Bros. brocade coat, size S/M
This vintage gold lame brocade evening coat has long sleeves, a wide collar, and short lapels.
There are three textured gold-tone buttons with cutouts down the front.
It has a nice cream-yellow lining (that feels like taffeta).
There are two deep hidden front vertical seam pockets and a decorative back and partial-front belt (23 1/4" by 1 1/4") with 2 gold-tone buttons (which keep the two 17 1/2" long overlapping sections together).
There is a wide back panel (9 1/2" wide under the belt, widening to 12 3/4" at the hem) which overlaps the side fabric 2 3/8" under the belt, widening to 4 1/4" by the hem.
The front has the same type of overlapping fabric, which starts as a seam and turns into a panel below the belt on each side.
It has a partial swirl design in gold lame, light antique white, cream lame, and gold metallic thread.
It's a beautiful coat, with great fabric, style, and detail.
A model used it for the Academy Awards.
She wore it with vintage gold pumps with lucite heels and crystal shoe clips, a vintage gold beaded purse with a lucite handle over a Jacques Griffe ballet-length chiffon tulle dress, and borrowed vintage estate jewelry.
