Title:
Fitted coat with "disappearing collar" and dropped shoulders
Description:
"Disappearing collar" seems to be a term the André studio created for this design, in which the collar consists of small points of fabric which extend downward from the neck as a part of the dropped sleeves. A "dropped sleeve" extends down over the shoulder rather than stopping at the upper arm.
Image includes small sketch of back of garment.
