Catalogue Note

There were several minks in Vivien’s collection and she enjoyed wearing luxurious fur. She is photographed with Marilyn Monroe wearing a very similar coat in 1956. On the 14th July of that year, Monroe and her new husband Arthur Miller stepped from a plane at London Airport, where Vivien and Larry were waiting to welcome them both women were photographed wearing mink.
