1950s Green Sculptural Lilli Diamond Dress & Jacket
This early 1950s set is still so chic and I love that mix of the fitted bombshell dress with the full and dramatic coat. The coat is cut in a way that almost reminds me of petals- especially in the way that each sleeve and shoulder is constructed. The dress is It a loose cut, voluminous draped affair constructed entirely of a brilliant green heavy silk satin Curved lines and dramatic buttons add a rich feel and then lined in an olive silk to match the sash of the dress. The dress has a sculpted fitted cut with a curved and seamed bodice. The waist nips in and the skirt is fitted. Presents as excellent condition.
Both pieces are fully lined in a green silky rayon. The coat has no closures. The dress closes with a back painted metal zipper. Note that there are some small flaws that when on do not distract but are present when you really look. There is a faint darkening to the fabric around the upper collar on the coat and this also appears on the skirt middle front and back - I believe this is from storage and being left folded for a long time. I could not capture it with the camera. Again once one you will not notice this at all. I have priced the set down accordingly
