Alex Maguy Coat - 1948

The fact that couture is an art form becomes very apparent in this coat made by couturier Alex Maguy in 1948.  Maguy has used a wool fabric in black with gray and white stripes.  He has manipulated those stripes and seamed them into rectangles and chevrons.  I am in complete and utter awe.

Fantastic work. Adrian and Irene did some of this manipulation in the US, but this is a fantastic example in an overcoat.
