Leave it to Hubert de Givenchy to design the ultimate "Fuzzy Wuzzy" faux snow leopard maxi coat that manages to be outrageous, functional, and extremely flattering. Maxi coats and faux fur can often make for a combo that leaves the wearer looking, well, maxi and actually quite literally a bit too "fuzzy wuzzy." This coat is cut lean and mean and long. It has a notch collar, pockets at the hip, and a collar that can be worn spread wide over the shoulders or up to keep your neck warm. We had the coat re-lined (the original owner said the coat stopped traffic and apparently she stopped a lot of traffic so we refreshed the lining). If you are looking for the impact of fur but without fur, love to see spots, and don't mind causing a commotion while channeling the softer side of Creula de Vil, snap up this early 1970s coat before the fall.

Givenchy Boutique for Bergdorf Goodman maxi faux snow leopard coat, c. early 1970s. Marked size 40, modern 4 to 6 (relined to match original lining)
