1960s Hildebrand Lurex Boucle Coat Dress
Introducing the epitome of 1960s chic: The Lurex Bouclé Coat Dress by Hildebrand of London. Get ready to turn heads, as this piece is more than a garment—it's an experience!
The fabulous asymmetrical brass exposed zip that boldly crosses the front, drawing attention like a moth to a flame. And that triangular pull? It's not simply a detail, it's an exclamation point on your fashion statement, for a touch of edgy, modernist style.
But wait; it gets better. The base of this masterpiece is woven with threads of pure enchantment—super sparkly gold lurex that shimmers and dances with every step you take. It's a dazzling display of opulence, capturing the light wherever you go. Zoom in and discover the intricate bouclé chenille detailing, arranged in clusters of vibrant orange and sun-kissed yellow. The textures and hues intertwining to create a feast for the eyes and senses.
The bracelet-length sleeves and the round notch-tip collar finish off this quintessential sixties silhouette, and she is fully lined in a high quality acetate Rayon.
Designed by a young visionary at Hildebrand of London, this coat dress is a wearable work of art. It encapsulates the spirit of an era that dared to be different, that embraced change and self-expression with open arms.
