    Think of winter 2018 as the season for glam-royal-funky-playful-opulent outerwear. The Fashiontag blog pronounced “it’s as if this season waited patiently for all coat trends and looks to parade themselves throughout time and then brilliantly selected only the best.”

    Yes, designers delivered stunning coats this year, but look at the vintage inspirations for these coats, and make a statement with vintage!

    At The Vintage Merchant we just reduced this luxurious NOS Lilli Ann mohair blend swing coat with ranch mink fur collar. It's a nice, little-bit-larger size (although labeled size 8, it has a bust of 45"), too.

    NOW SOLD, thank you! :wub:

    A favorite from my personal collection that was passed on to a friend of mine, then passed on to another friend, then me, then to another friend, and has stayed in our vintage circle of friends.
