Worth numbered couture coat, c.1910 This superlative numbered coat by Jean-Philippe Worth is in a class of its own. The bold Persian-style design is a triumphant statement of art for art's. The magnificent coat would be the centerpiece of any collection in or out of museum even if it did not come from the greatest name in fashion history.
Worth, 1910. With a circular cut, the spectacular coat is smooth across the shoulders, falling to the hem in deep folds. Jean-Philippe Worth's Persian-style border design has larger-than-life botehs in a reverse pattern—an exceptional realization of the Orientalism aesthetic.
