Silk coat, 1915
Slim and shapely, but planned to withstand the ravages of the weather, this silk coat's charm is enhanced with fur, while the moujik cap is of black astrakhan. An outfit with a typical silhouette of the World War One period - a full skirt and a high collar with a high crowned hat. Most dashing.
