Experimentation with a coat for two leaves couples with really no escape.
From the collection of:
A pantomime horse of a fashion idea sees a new design for a coat for couples tried out and tried on in Plymouth. Alison Holloway tests its wearability and saleability to the bemusement of onlookers. The doubleheader single-sleeved item has the locals caught in a dilemma more akin to a game of Twister than changing-room fashion passion and one from which there is just no easy escape. Good for a hug, huggle or cuddle, the cuddle coat is a poncho with a difference.
The patent is still pending.
