This is a gorgeous evening coat, in a thick pale blue wool. It is double breasted and has diamante buttons and a collar encrusted in rhinestones and pearls. The coat was sold at Rose Goldwasser, which was probably a high end boutique.

This gorgeous Ben Zuckerman suit dates from the late 1960's, towards the end of Ben Zuckerman's career. It is a pale grey wool, with a typical Zuckerman plain skirt, and a jacket that has 3/4 length sleeves, and a half belt at the waist. The model is wearing a fantastic hat, that almost resembles a towel wrapped around the head.
