This very rare and collectible coat is stunning true vintage 1960s full length maxi wool coat from Originala for Saks Fifth Avenue. This tangerine beauty is as luxe as it gets. The construction (ILGWU/Made in USA) is extraordinary--as is the condition! Mandarin collar with six matching frog front closures. Hidden pockets on the side seams. Fully and richly lined in a slightly lighter orange tone with the ILGWU and Saks Fifth Avenue labels--as well as the Iconic Originala label inside.

A rare and collectible piece! Originala coats were featured on many high-end fashion magazines of the time and modeled by the likes of Wilhemina and other supermodels of the era.

Ilie Wacs was the head designer at Originala from 1964 through 1972, and Louis Dell’Olio worked there from 1971 through 1974. Originala was one of the most expensive and luxurious coat lines made at the time and this coat demonstrates why.
