The lack of strength of the Spanish industry led several artists to try their luck beyond the Pyrenees, as did the Sevillian of French descent Julio Laffitte, who trained with Molyneux and Lucien Lelong in the 30s, and in the 50s designed for Patou. In the 40s, he opened workshops in Madrid and Barcelona in his own name, and also made the leap to New York, where he designed for department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Hattie Carnegie.

Elegant trench coat in a military style cut, with straight shoulders and very narrow sleeves, austere in the forms and maximum use of the textile, aspiring to a production line with the material shortage of those years.
