Decades has long-coveted designs from the 1960s and 1970s under the "Hermes Sport" label. The brown suede coat below with matching skirt was purchased at the flagship Hermes boutique in Paris in the early 1960s. The original owner accompanied her grandmother, who was married to an Oscar-winning actor, on a Paris shopping spree and this was one of her prized mementos from that holiday. The coat is a timeless design with a teddy faux-fur lining and pewter-hued buttons engraved "Hermes Paris." The coordinating classic A-line skirt features a bridal leather equestrian motif decorative attached belt. In spectacular condition and fresh from a gentle dry cleaning by Arrow Cleaners, this coat is sure to become a family heirloom. However, we like to think all purchases from Decades are future heirlooms!

Hermes Sport brown suede coat with coordinating skirt set, c 1960s. Modern size 8 to 10.
