Mrs Vreeland's coat

.

I've written about it (the classic pea coat) before-but not this one.
My story went something like- no one should be without one...
But what about this one?
 Voilà!- it's being auctioned of the 25th in London-
Vintage 1960, Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, Diana Vreeland's that is, and oh yes, it has a bit of red Legion d'Honneur ribbon sewn into the curved collar. Mrs Vreeland was created chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur in 1970, and added this touch to her coat.




See what else has Mrs. Vreeland's name on it at Kerry Taylor Auctions-the Sale is June 25, Lots 128 through 134 .

  2. I think you must have this pea coat.
    I will not fit me as Diana Vreeland was very slim.
    The touch of red makes the coat
