When is a coat a coat and when is it a dress?  Sometimes it is both.  And then sometimes it's beyond description.  This James Galanos intricately beaded coat can be worn open with a camisole and tux pants; or, closed up as a dynamic long and colorful gown.  Pieces like this are prohibitive to buy from today's designers.  Throw on a crystal and add a digit to the price tag.  Leave it to Mr. Galanos to give us full on paisley sensational details in a mélange of colors that are thoroughly swirling!  The ultra chic would wear this when feeling ill in their sick bed.

James Galanos beaded & sequined coat, c. 1960's. Modern size 4 to 6. SOLD
