1960s Gino Charles for Malcolm Starr Purple & Pink Printed Jumpsuit w Extra Wide Legs
How absolutely gorgeous is this jumpsuit? It was made by Gino Charles for Malcolm Starr, which was their line targeted towards a more younger clientele. I love the colour combination with its two shades of pink mixed with that wonderful deep purple and white. The fabric is a cotton mix and it has a raised texture worked through the fabric that makes it quite interesting and makes the print pop off of it. The sleeves are short and the front is meant to skim over you. The waist is loose and easy and you could easily add a belt if you wanted more shape. I love the neckline and how it is slit down the front. The cut of it is highlighted further by a wide band of purple cotton velvet. To give it a little more detailing a band of grosgrain is set down the centre of the velvet and then a silver cord in the centre of that. This is all pieced to curve around the collar and then runs down the full front right past the waist seam. The pants are very full and flare out in a gentle swoop of fabric as they fall to the floor. Each is a full 36" around. At first glance it looks like full length dress but as soon as you move you realize it is a jumpsuit. Pockets along each hip. It is a beautiful and dramatic piece. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a white silk. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each leg is a full 36" around the bottom hem. Hand finished throughout with ribbon edge finishes to parts of the interior seams. There is a good 3" turned up under the hem of each leg if you meed more length. It looks unworn on the exterior but there are some minor marks to the lining. Please see the last photo after the label shot.
