An upcoming auction of personal items from the estate of Greta Garbo includes this coat designed by Bonnie Cashin. Garbo was a woman of wealth with impeccable taste. Nearly every one of the hundreds of items of clothing listed in the auction catalog was custom made for her; designers include Valentina, Dior, Ferragamo, Emilio Pucci, Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuitton. She selected well made sports clothes for her world travels and active but reclusive lifestyle. However, one day Miss Garbo walked into Lord & Taylor and purchased this Cashin coat off the rack because its beauty and practicality was irresistible.
