#5443C - c. early 1950's TRIGERE, New York, Bergdorf Goodman On the Plaza, New York Pauline Trigere Muted Plaid Wool Cape with High Collar Back! Can't really call this a hooded cape unless you have a pea head! :) I just raised the back of the collar as you can see how high it goes... like an Edwardian collar! Lovely almost muted red, green and white plaid wool. Closes with a short tie at front neck and a couple of fur-type hooks. The arms go through the holes, but the holes also have button tabs to close if you just decide to toss this over your shoulders. The inside lining is a green wool to help keep you toasty. The condition of the exterior is Excellent. The moths, however, got to the green lining (see photos). Luckily they didn't like the taste of the plaid! And the hooks at front would need to be re-stitched in place. A nice early piece of Trigere. Her version of "Little Red Riding Hood"... oh, and certainly Pauline Trigere's checked coat/cape was special enough to be used for Patricia Neal's character in the classic movie, "Breakfast at Tiffany's". NEW LISTING! Also Listed in the 1930-Today Section.
