1960s Black Boucle Suit & Eyelash Shell

This suit is constructed at a very high level and if it turned out to be a very high end designer I would not be chocked at all. Alas it only has its Holt Renfrew tag that dates it to the early 60s, maybe late 50s! It came from an estate that was chock full of the bog labels - Dior, Balenciaga and more so if nothing else it is on that level! The fabric is a wool with a nubby finish. It is a medium weight so not unwieldy to wear. I love the chic little pencil skirt with the slight flare to the hem. The jacket is adorable with an attached flat bow just under the bust and a second one on the belt. It came with this fabulous little eyelash finish shell which offers the perfect contrast to the suit fabric! A fabulous bit of added glitz! Excellent condition

The top is unlined and both the skirt and jacket have hand set fine black silk linings. The top closes with a fine back painted metal zipper as does the skirt, and the jacket buttons to close. The belt is original and has a hook closure. Really beautifully finished inside - a very well made suit!
