Dereta Vintage Coat
Stunning Deréta vintage coat. Ideal for the spring!
A stunning Dereta vintage coat in lemon, dating from the 1950/60s. Beautiful for any occasion!
This collarless, fully-lined vintage coat is ideal for spring and summer with those unpredictable chilly evenings. The fabric may be a linen/wool mix but I’m not sure; it feels warm but light. This lovely Dereta vintage coat has three-quarter length cuffed sleeves and two pockets. The three large buttons, as to be expected with vintage, are just gorgeous! Do click and move your cursor over the photo and you should see them in more detail.
Approx measurements : Bust 38″; Hips 38-40″ The coat does not have the shape of a “swing coat” so I would say that, in modern terms, this is a UK Size 12 – or 14, if you prefer to wear your coat unbuttoned as in the photo.
Dereta excelled in creating high-quality, ready-to-wear clothing, especially in the 1950s, and this lovely coat is another example of why Dereta was such a popular brand in its day.
Condition: Very good to excellent. Although this Dereta vintage beauty has been dry-cleaned my eagle-eyes can see two small grey marks on the back of one of the shoulders. The marks are very faint and not at all noticeable but I always try to be honest in my descriptions, particularly with regard to condition, and all our items are priced accordingly.
I know I’m probably biased, but I think this Dereta coat is a real vintage beauty!
