This stunning piece was featured on the runway of Burberry Prorsum´s Spring Summer 2013 collection in look 3. This collection, as well as the matching women's one, saw a lot of metallic silk pieces in various colors, among them pale green, lavender, and as in this case electric blue. Those pieces, especially this coat, made quite the headlines back then, with two newspaper articles dedicated solely to this exact piece.
The coat has a classic single-breasted cut and is made from 100% Italian foil-bonded silk, which is why it is very light and therefore perfectly suitable for spring and summer. It had a retail price of $2,995 and was the most expensive of all the metallic pieces.
This is an incredibly rare garment and a must-have for every collector. Adding to the desirability, it is in perfect condition and was basically never worn.
