Jean Charles de Castelbajac
Jean Charles Castelbajac got his start by making himself a coat out of an old blanket when he was just a boy. This became a signature look for him and this coat is a prime example of the look Castelbajac was after. I found this over the summer but didn't feel it was appropriate to post until fall. I sold this piece at the vintage show I attended this past weekend, and am already missing it. The dealer who bought it sells exclusively to high end collectors in New York, so I know it will find a good home.
