#4643 - c. 1951 RARE JEAN DESSES, Paris Dark Blue "Height of Fashion" Suit! This would have been one of those fashions I'm sure was profiled in Parisian Vogue... so uniquely styled! Especially the skirt!!! Go look at it.. NOW! Really... click on the photo at the left and you will see just what I'm talking about! Like wings at back!! The jacket itself is a masterpiece of design and construction with the unique diagonal double-breasted shape, fitted and flared. The material is a woven blue and black which just looks dark blue at first glance. Round shiny buttons adorn. Measures: 38" bust, 28" waist, 30" long skirt, 7/8 length sleeves, possibly hemmed up (2.5" hem), but can be re-hemmed. Excellent condition other than the two tiny moth holes found (easily rewoven with this type fabric).. one on cuff, one of bodice front (which could have been a brooch hole rather than a moth. This suit deserves a museum or museum collection!!!
SOLD - but on display in Museum Category for Research/Display
