This Ben Zuckerman coat, dating from 1953 is made of 'poodle' knit wool in a very pale lilac. It has one visible button (and probably more hidden buttons), 3/4 length sleeves and a large collar. It is a warm and cosy coat that looks great too!

Here we have a beautiful silk brocade coat by Ben Zuckerman. The coat is single breasted and has patch pockets and 'ruby' buttons. This coat would have like had a matching or complimentary dress and would have been worn to cocktail parties.

While shopping for her trousseau, Grace Kelly (soon to be Princess Grace) bought a number of suits from Ben Zuckerman, including this lovely example. She wore the suit to her wedding rehearsal  She accessorised it with a pair of white gloves, a turban and a clip board, which caused, according to Judith Balaban Quine, bridesmaid to Miss Kelly, several people to confuse Grace for a secretary, as no future princess could look so business like!
