Bonnie Cashin wool coat, 1960s. I would willingly traffic in people in order to afford this coat. Lol.
Ensemble, Madame Grès (Alix Barton) ca. 1959, French The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The bodice of the coat is formed by two pattern pieces, but unlike other designers who would conceive of a tailored garment as front and back, Gres thinks of the pattern piece as right side and left side, mirror images that are draped into form
