|Poiret Cocoon Coat
Misses Extra Small to X-Large
This fully-lined Cocoon Coat was designed around 1913-1919 by Paul Poiret, a renowned early 20th century designer. It features bat wing sleeves, one-piece front/back body, neckband, and hobble skirt. The easy-sew Reticule (drawstring bag), typical of the same period, is fully lined and closes with decorative cording; it is embellished with a tassel that hangs from the bottom.
This sophisticated World War I era outfit was made in New York and was probably a copy of a trendy Paris fashion. The military-styled Jacket features Princess seams, shaped waistline, and below-hip peplum. The high stand collar has an optional contrast overcollar; decorative insets adorn the cuffs. The Jumper has a plunging V-neck in front and back, shoulder pleats, waist-shaping tucks, and decorative buckle at center front
