Callot Soeurs (attributed)
The modified T-shaped construction, side slits, heavy fringes and a contoured frontal closure extending passed the fall line of the fabric was inspired by ethnic costume. The lace technique and its surface pattern were of european origin. The lack of shoulder seams is an unusual element in this coat’s construction. That, along with the custom designed edges at the neckline, frontal aperture and hem and the skillful use of lace may indicate that the couture house responsible for this design was Callot Soeurs.
