Cocoon coat

in silk taffeta and silk brocade

Period: 1912 / 1913

This evening coat, a so-called cocoon coat, is based on an original historical pattern from 1913. Its special feature is the pronounced upper width with cut sleeves and the strong taper towards the hem, a silhouette typical of Titanic evening coats. A silk taffeta printed with chrysanthemums was used for the outer material and a golden silk brocade for the lining. A large frog closure serves as the fastening.
