The Cat's whiskers - a whole ocelot pelt on the back of a brown nutria coat that is belted and fringed in brown leather. An oatmeal knit tunic underneath stops just short of flaring muskateer boots by Roger Vivier for Saint Laurent. 

Leg-of-mutton sleeved throatbanded long velvet dinner dress narrow to the wrist and to the floor.

Saint Laurent's long look at fur and fringed leather, covered black velvet, Persian-rug coats ... worn by Mme. Francois Catroux

Mid-calf coats, Persian-rug prints: 

Dark green and yellow arabesques on a beige double-breasted coat with skirt gathered low at the waist over a brown jersey jumpsuit.

Vivid blues, greens, reds, and pink on a long coat wrapped and sashed like a man's bathrobe over a navy blue jersey tunic and pants.

Left: lean greige tweed with thick welted seams in Helita wool. Saint Laurent scarf tucked into the neckline.
Right: dark brown wool jersey mid-calf over a cinnamon-banded navy thigh-length tunic over lean stovepipe pants.

Loden caped coat in white-flecked misty green wool. The Capelet just past the elbow, the skirt to mid-calf. Black jersey pants. Leather gloves by Kislav.
