Long snake stich coat with silver metallic threads shimmering within the monochromatic hues defining a textured A-line coat that’s visually shaped with an angled zigzag pattern. It features a front button fastening, patch pockets, a back vent, and an optional belt. Made of rayon/cupro/polyester. By the Italian designer Missoni.
I find this coat elegant but a bit sad looking and I am not a fan of the zigzag pattern.

On 3rd April 1983 during an official trip in Australia, Prince Charles, accompanied by Princess Diana, travelled to Warwick Farm to play in a polo match, his first for six months. For the Princess, though, there was an ulterior motive. At the match she met Ann Bolton, her flatmate from bachelor-girl days, who was now resident in Australia. The Princess was wearing a pale blue and white stripes dress with a white sailor collar by Catherine Walker.
On 11th May 1986 in Tokyo, Japan, the Princess of Wales wore an elegant cream and black wool suit by Catherine Walker. The double-breasted white jacket has black covered buttons to match the collar and cuffs and is completed with a long pleated black skirt. More than 100 000 people lined the streets of Tokyo in scenes of near hysteria to catch a glimpse of the Prince and Princess of Wales as they passed by in their open car. The couple visited St Alban’s Anglican church and the Princess watched demonstrations of doll-making and ikebana in the annexe of the Akasaka Palace.
