This weekend Bill Cunningham's street fashion photos in the New York Times focused on the evolution of the puffy down coat. Apparently the first one ever was designed by Charles James in the 1930s, shown above as worn in the '60s by Juan Ramos (left) and Antonio Lopez (right), who I posted about here. [I'm mainly posting about this because it's relevant to a project Emily and I are working on right now... more about that when it's done.]
