1960s Vintage Lilli Ann Coat in Ice Blue with Silver Mink SZ S
 
Such a pretty, pretty 1960s coat. It is a Lilli Ann and it shows. It is well made of quality materials. The ice blue wool has a lovely soft ribbed texture used on the horizontal to compliment the fur hem band and the collar. The hem band helps the A-line silhouette by supporting the hem width. Covered buttons and bound buttons close the front, while the collar closes with fur hooks. The 7/8 length sleeves are raglan at the front and cut in in with the back. Martin’s was located on Baltimore St. in Cumberland from the 1950s at least.

Labels: Lilli Ann Paris San Francisco, Martin’s Cumberland, MD.

1970 Vintage Abstract Printed Silk Twill Dress by B.H. Wragge Sz S/M

I adore that Wragge actually dated their label. This 1970 dress is a marvelous , bold print in orange, yellow, aqua, rose and fuchsia. The style is simple - open shirt style collar, ¾ flare sleeves and tent silhouette. This is beautifully made, with a silk lining, handset metal zipper and hand sewn hem. And side pockets, too! Wragge made good quality ready to wear for the younger American market. And did it well.

Label: BH Wragge 70

1950s Navy Blue Silk Satin Vintage Dress by Maurice Rentner SZ M

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Maurice Rentner label,Rentner was a respected manufacturer of quality women’s wear from the 1920s until his death in 1958. According to the VFG Label Resource,Wilson Folmar was one of the designers there. After 1958, Bill Blass designed for the label until he bought the company in 1967.
This dress is likely pre 1958, as Blass is not credited on the label. It’s a rich navy silk satin,with bateau neckline, pleated skirt, shaped matching belt, and wonderful deep draped sleeve cuffs. The cuffs are shaped by cartridge pleats at the underarm sleeve seam. A great detail, done with subtlety. Side metal zipper to close.
