A shawl-style coat cut from a single piece of fabric. The incision in the center of the fabric combined with the black silk chiffon trimming around the collar creates a nukiemon style, or exposed-neck look. This type of garment is typical of Jeanne Paquin, who sought to achieve both beauty and comfort.
From 1910 to around 1913, many maisons created coats in a generous swing back style, a design feature of which was an exposed neck, as though influenced by the nukiemon look of Japanese kimono.
