1970s Bonnie Cashin Cropped Blood Orange Suede Jacket


Bonnie Cashin's exuberant use of color never comes off as silly or clownish, just like a trip through the farmer's market never looks psychedelic when you check out the color of all the ripe fruit. Not quite red, not quite orange, this cropped suede jacket is more the color of the juice of a blood orange so if your monitor says pink to you, it's lying. Cut like a classic denim jacket with a teensy weensy bt of extra length, it has two flap pockets at the chest and fastens with those signature turnlock clasps in brass. Backed in blood orange leather, this was made for Sills and Co. Bust measures up to 38", shoulder to shoulder 14.25", outer sleeve 22.5" and length 21.5". Excellent condition with the exception of some minor soiling on the sleeve.

1970s Bonnie Cashin Baby Blue Canvas Coat


Bonnie Cashin can, and will, easily take you from apple picking in a country orchard (in Celine driving mocs and a vintage hermes Birkin bag) to dinner at Oceana over a bright pink chiffon Matthew Wiiliamson dress. A delightful blend of city mouse and country mouse attitudes, it just shows her designs are intellectual and still totally down to earth. Heavy baby blue cotton canvas trimmed in baby blue leather with demilune pocket holes and signature brass turnlock closures. Self lined, there is leather along the tops of the shoulders, which emphasizes the raglan sleeves. Made for Sills, the bust measures up to 44", shoulder to shoulder 16", outer sleeve 21.75" and length 40". Excellent condition.

1970s Bonnie Cashin Canvas Coat with Attached Leather Hobo

Bonnie Cashin fought to retain the integrity of her designs with such vehemence because she BELIEVED that she knew what women would respond to. All the things that men overlooked in lieu of pure style without any function were mandatory for Cashin, who was so right. Look next to you on the bus - at the woman with the cheap purse with dogleash clasps holding the strap to the body. Check out the enormous pockets on the pants at the Gap - these are all things that were nonexistent before the world was graced with the genius of Cashin. Her ideas have trickled down to the most common uninspired accessory manufacturers because even schlock houses recognize a good idea. A tangerine cotton canvas coat with attached leather hobo bag, which came about because Bonnie didn't always want to hassle with carrying a purse. It's things that like that that leave us in awe. So practical, so smart and so freaking stylish and it can only be Cashin. Topstitched in white, the leather collar and strap are the same exact shade of orange as the canvas. The attached bag on the right side has a main outer pocket and a small front pocket which closes with a large brass zipper. It doesn't matter if you never put anything in there - it just looks so cool. Inseam pocket on the left side, this is lined entirely in matching orange canvas. Made for Philip Sills, it fastens simply along the placket ith signature turnlock closures. Bust up to 40", shoulder to shoulder 16", outer sleeve 22" and length 45". As is true with all of Cashin's work, these pieces look perfect with faded Levi's and a t or a little Norell yellow wool shift. Beat that! Excellent condition.

1960s Bonnie Cashin Houndstooth Printed Canvas Coat with Belt

Oh that clever Bonnie Cashin. Not only playful with her sense of color, her practical approach to designing clothes makes her the intelligent woman's easy choice for vintage. But there was also a traditional studio artist at work that understood classical painting and drawing techniques, which is evident in this printed canvas coat. A fabulous sense of proportion, heavy cotton canvas is printed with an oversized black and white houndstooth print. Stand up neckline is banded on the inside with black leather and the signature turnlock closures along the placket echo the ones in the black leather belt. Naturally high waisted with a flared hem, this looks exceptional belted but is also fantastic as a makeshift trench and easy to do as there are no belt loops. Black pants and Miu Miu sporty flat boots and you can be mod influenced without looking like you're trying to live in the past. Unlined and made for Sills, this will fit a sized 8 or small 10 that is not taller than 5'4" - the outer sleeves are bracelet length at 21" and the length is 36". Excellent condition.

VINTAGE BONNIE CASHIN LEATHER TRENCH COAT.

This leather trench coat is made out of "angola leather of selected imported hides." The texture is far superior to an ordinary leather coat. It's a super-wearable khaki/taupe color, with leather buckles on the cuffs and a leather buckle on the top for closure. The bust measures 36", waist: 34", hips: 40", sleeve length: 24", overall length: 41.5". It has one spot on the lining. Excellent condition.

I was surprised to find 4 pages devoted to a designer I had never heard of. (Surprised given that some well known designers barely have a page in comparison.) So, I browsed through the entire thread to see what was the deal.

I wasn't entirely wowwed. Several of the pieces struck me as a timeless, but many others had me thinking "chain store generic." Also, the colours. Perhaps they look better in person, but in photos, they look garish and loud in a cheap way.

I do think most of her ideas were quite practical (especially the one about using a build-in pin for long skirts), but some verge on tacky. Like the purse as a part of a coat? I could buy it on futuristic or very off-beat coats, but her stuff screams "white bread suburban" not forward thinking fashionista. (And frankly, purses AREN'T that cumbersome.)
