1970s Merivale leather coat


Size Extra Small (approx AU 6)

Is marked size AU8 but in today’s sizing more like an AU6

Condition Excellent vintage. There are a few tiny marks on leather, possible tiny rub marks, but nothing that detracts or is obvious.

Please check measurements as the waist and hip measurements were very small and the girls were shorter in the past. Measurements are measured flat on the garment so please remember to allow room to move. It is always a good idea to check measurements against a similar item of clothing that you know fits you. You need to leave room also with coats as you most likely will be wearing clothes underneath.

Fabulous vintage 1970s calf-length, aubergine-coloured (dark purple tone) leather coat by the iconic Australian brand House of Merivale.

Merivale fashion was designed and made in Australia. Fabulous quality and finishing. The leather is an unusual aubergine colour and still quite supple.

Great cut and styling with lots of seaming for the perfect fit.

Closes at the front with 3 large plastic buttons, The belt is only at the front as is sewn in the side seams. There are 2 smaller plastic buttons on each cuff.

There is a long opening at the back at hem for ease of movement.

Full lined in an acetate satin.

As the coat was too small for my model I couldn’t show it with all buttons closed.

The dress underneath is not included in the price but is available for sale on the site.
