1940s Amazing Curved Button Check Suit

The look of this suit is so shockingly modern it is easy to see why current designers consistently look to the past for inspiration. This lightweight, fine wool fabric suit is left unlined and is very easy to wear. Sometimes suit of this era can be very restrictive and heavy but not this one! The fabric is a deep deep navy with a red double line check. The jacket has the perfect strong shoulder and nips in at the waist with a little flared hip peplum. Each sleeve is cuffed. The skirt is fitted through the waist and hips and then glides into a soft feminine A-line. The button detail is of course what absolutely make this set though - the jacket curves over to one side and back towards the other. Decorative buttons on the skirt match up exactly to where the ones on the jacket end. It is very Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen in feel but is the original thing! Amazing condition and truly fabulous!
