Istante (Versace) coat, size 6
This tone-on-tone dark red crushed velvet evening coat is a vintage Istante by Gianni Versace and was made in Italy.
It's 63% acetate and 37% rayon.
There are built-in shoulder pads, long sleeves, and an interior button on the right front side about 7 1/2" inward and about 17 3/4" below the shoulder.
The left front edge has a buttonhole.
The right front side doesn't button or snap onto anything.
You can roll the sleeves up so that you have a 1 3/4" wide area of blue-violet velvet showing.
The full lining is in a tone-on-tone blue-violet color crushed velvet.
It has a 4 3/8" wide collar which flows into lapels.
It's nicely made with very soft velvet.
It's quite eyecatching and looks better in person.
It's from an actress.
