1973 Valentino Linen Skirt & Top Set

The top of this amazing 100% linen set is clearly marked on the tag with the date 11/26/73 giving us an exact date of production! It also appears to have not been worn and is excellent condition so it is like buying a piece for a time capsule! The perfect, chic, refined summer set it has lots of demi-couture finishes. The fabric is a slightly starched linen so looks and feels rich and finely made. I love the over-sized short and the double layer at the skirt hem. It is so much better on a real girl then how it photos and having the two separate pieces makes it endlessly versatile! Wonderful!

The top is unlined and buttons to close at the front and cuffs. The skirt is partially lined with a white silky rayon and closes with large flat hook & eye and a painted metal zipper.
