1970s Rare Hermes Silk Top & Skirt Set

A truly stunning set from the legendary house of Hermes that has that ultimate rich girl, country club chic vibe! Both pieces are superbly simple in cut, allowing the beauty of that custom screened signature silk twill Hermes fabric to shine. The colors are pure happy citrus hues - a mix of pale lemons highlighted with soft mustard's and and pink bead taupe's, all edged in fine black and signed throughout with that famous Hermes signature and text. The skirt is tightly knife pleated right from the waist so it falls fairly straight but with tons of volume and swing when you move. The top is a soft cut that has an almost chic sweatshirt feel to it with ribbing at the neck, waist, collar and cuffs. But where a normal Tee would have cotton stretch ribbing this is a woven silk! This is a classic and collectible set that is a once in a lifetime form one of the greatest fashion houses in the history of fashion! Excellent condition

Both pieces are unlined. The skirt closes with a painted metal side zipper and hidden hook & eye on the waistband. The top slips on with no closures. There are two extremely faint smudges on the top - please super size to see. The little thread loops that the hooks slide into on the waist band look to have been moved. You can keep them where they are at or have them moved for a perfect fit on the waist! These do not detract from this amazing and very rare piece! Tagged a French 38
