This is a navy blue Zuckerman from a 1967 Vogue magazine. It has three-quarter length sleeves, is double breasted with striking white buttons and is accented by a white scarf at the neck.
The model is Wilhelmina (Cooper). She was born in 1939 and had a very successful career as a model in the 1950's and 60's. She appeared on American Vogue a record 27 times. In 1967 she opened a modelling agency, Wilhelmina Models, which went on to represent models such as Naomi Sims and Gia Carangi. She died in 1980 of lung cancer.
