1970s Missoni Knit Jacket & Culotte Set
Rare and fabulous set from the infamous house of Missoni! It is so hard to come across the really great Missoni pieces - collectors hoard them like treasures (which they are). This has everything you want in a Missoni set. It is young, it is fresh, it speaks of the times it was made in and yet it is still classic and timeless. Wide cropped to the knee culottes work perfectly with the matching jacket - both are done in a beautiful and classic Missoni knit chevron. The pants have hidden side pockets and drape perfectly. The way they tie is very interesting - ties attach tot he tops of each pocket that wrap around the waist! The jacket is a dream - it has ties at the waist and at the neck, which allows you to style it as you please - wear it open or closed. The knit is a nice weight - it's not heavy - you could easily wear this on a cooler summer evening and then again in the fall with fantastic boots. Really a special and quite rare set! Excellent condition!
