Georgiana's Evening Coat
Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire.
Faintest scent of carnations.
English skin. Tall. Grand lack of fuss. Walks through Rules restaurant on a Tuesday like a colt in slow motion. Sits at a table 20 feet away.
“Huh.” I can’t help but stare. Regal.
Even across the room, her voice, though not at all loud, is clear, deliberate, with an emphasis on the sibilants like only the English can do. I am caught in its rhythms, even without being able to understand a word. It must have been Devonshire Drawl, her own creation.
She said something about, “in my next life, I’m going to paint seriously and live in Amsterdam.”
Georgiana’s Evening Coat (No. 6802). Single-breasted evening coat in an unforgettable floral jacquard. Full set-in flared sleeves and slightly flared bodice to match. Kissing center back pleat. Smart mandarin collar. Diagonal welted pockets. Poly/Lurex blend shell. Poly twill lining. Self-fabric covered buttons. Imported.
