1970s Black Crepe Jean Muir Peplum Suit

This little Jean Muir suit is a fabulous basic with the kind of subtle detailing that Muir became famous for. Her signature top stich is present on the collar, those fabulous shoulders, each cuff and the hip peplum. I love the nod tot he forties in the cut of this suit too. It is loose and easy through the body with a button front. This cinches down at the waist and then a stitched and shaped hip detail flares out over the fitted skirt. The cuffs pick up that same curved shape. It makes for a fabulous suit and you can also wear the pieces separately. Excellent condition.

Both pieces are unlined. The jacket closes with buttons at the front and on each cuff. The skirt closes with a side zipper and a button at the waist
