  • Parachute-type nylon fabric packs up tiny to slip into your tote or suitcase -- great for travel

This unusual goth, mod item was purchased new at tony Saks Fifth Avenue in Manhattan by my mom, who wore it to the opera, symphony, and similar, when people still dressed up for that kind of thing. It's beyond cool and feels light and comfortable. Very vampire!

Labels: Saks Fifth Avenue

Fiber/Care: 100% nylon / labeled dry-clean only, and we suspect it's because of the potential for the (most likely cotton) cording inside the red piping to shrink, distorting the shape of the coat

Condition: no flaws to note beyond the most minor signs of age, clean and ready to wear
