1959 198 Pages (Condé Nast)

Condition: Minor edge wear to binding and ink stamp from former library, otherwise good. 

 

COVER
One very good reason for the general excitement about this year's coat life is the brilliance of this, Nina Ricci's snugly belted, generously sleeved coat of a sure, heart-warming red wool. An unexpected addition is the subtraction of the collar, its replacement - an open throat framed by a triangular décolletage. Copied by Dan Millstein; about $125. Bonwit Teller; Hudson's; Neiman-Marcus: I. Magnin, Kislav gloves. New make-up highlighting: Max Factor's Goldfire Red lipstick.
