This ladies' opera coat was designed by Cressida Bell in the mid 1980s. It features two fabric designs in black and grey in printed heavy woven cotton. Size L, 130cm long.
The coat is in very good vintage condition without holes or tears but there is some fading on both sides and sleeves, quite symmetrically.
Cressida Bell (1959- )is a British designer specialising in textiles and interiors. She studied fashion at St Martin's School of Art, then the Royal College of Art before setting up her company, which has been running since 1984.
While she has her own style, her work is influenced by her family — the Bloomsbury Group's Quentin Bell was her father and Vanessa Bell was her grandmother.
