18 Aug 1959, London, England, UK --- Postal note. London. Inspired by the bright red mailboxes that dot London's streets, this vivid red wool overcoat strikes a colorful note in the Fall and Winter collection of Norman Hartnell, favorite designer of Britain's Royal Family. Extravagant as most of the costume's shown in Hartnell's collection, the coat is lavished with rich brown beaver that makes a huge shawl collar and falls in a band to the hem.

Even though this thread hasn't been updated in quite some time I thought it would be good to mention that London's Fashion and Textile Museum has an upcoming exhibit called Hartnell to Amies: Couture by Royal Appointment going from Nov 16th through February 23rd. The exhibit focus's on the work of Norman Hartnell, Frederick Fox, and Hardy Amies and how their designs for H.M. the Queen impacted high society and the perception of London as a fashionable city. It sounds like a really lovely exhibit, and if I wasn't an ocean away, I would be sure to check it out!

Here is a link to the Fashion and Textile museum website for more information...
