Knee-length wrap coat in pink wool. The coat has wide sloping shoulders and raglan sleeves, with a single stitched welt seam running from the shulder to cuff. The lapels are oversized, extending the length of the coat and crossing at the front and buttoning at the hem and inner lining, to create a sculptural shape and a standing collar. the coat has two pockets with vertical welted slit openings in the lower left and right front panels. The coat is partially lined in pink acetate fabric.
