Women’s Leather Coat with Cordovan Lacing and Sterling Silver Buttons.
This couture-crafted Bespoke coat is made of the finest French domestic Lambskin and lined in a heavy weight Silk Satin. The buttons were custom designed and hand-made by a NYC jeweler specializing in Sterling silver and gemstones. They feature a very nice hematite finish that works beautifully with the leather. The cordovan lacing is in another leather that has a slightly different finish – chosen for the subtle contrast it provided. The cordovan lacing is both punched and laced entirely by hand. It is a very labor intensive and highly skilled process.
All of our bespoke pieces are carefully fitted in several stages, since once complete, the ability to do alterations at a later time is very limited and a garment like this will go through addition fittings. Since everything has to be perfect, there is no forgiveness in a piece like this. All told, this coat has over 100 hours of labor in it.
