Royal purple 1980’s mohair coat

Made by Moroci of New York, which retailed in Nieman Marcus.   This blogger would be lying if she did not mention that she immediately thought of Prince when she laid eyes on this regal purple coat   Sure, Prince wore more brocades and ruffles, but it’s all about that color:  For centuries, it has been the color of royalty.  This particular piece is in a shade of imperial purple, or “the purple in the rainbow”, neither very red or very blue.  More interesting still is the fabric.  It’s slightly fuzzy.  It’s mohair!  The trim is a black imitation snakeskin and the coat will hit at least at mid-calf.   You can have a real field day building an ensemble around this.  As Prince would say, “Go crazy!”
