This undated Ben Zuckerman coat, probably dating from the early 1950's is in a wrap or 'robe' style. The coat is in pale tan and has 3/4 length sleeves and has no buttons- rather it is held shut by the wearer.
The model also wears a brooch by Jean Schlumberger. Schlumberger was born in France in 1907 and moved to the US after the Second World War. He was well known for his work with Tiffany's, and had many famous fans, including Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy. He was also the first jewellery designer to win a Coty Award. He died in 1987.
