1980s Valentino Textured Wool Long Cut Jacket & Skirt Set in a Vivid Coral w Cream Trim
This is a beautiful example of Valentino's main label ready-to-wear work that he was doing during the 1980s. It has those classic clean lines he was loved for and the colour is just phenomenal. This set is not perfect but its flaws are forgivable. The sheer impact it has outweighs any small imperfections.
Both the skirt and its matching long cut jacket have been made out of a fine light wool that is done in the most remarkable clear and bright coral colour. The wool has a slight texture to it that just makes that gorgeous colour pop even more. The skirt is beautifully cut with simple sleek lines. It is set flat around the waist and then angles out just slightly as it nears the hem. Piping in a matching light wool done in an ivory circled the top of the waist and then is set just above the hem. That same piping is used to define and highlight the cut of the matching jacket. It outlines the notched caller and runs down the front. A similar line to the one on the skirt is set just above the hem. When it is on these line up wonderfully. The jacket is cut with beautiful lines. It has light padding in each shoulder and simple sleeves. It falls to meet the hem of the skirt in length. Shaping is done to give just a bit of definition to the waist area. The back is left to fall in a simple sleek line. Big carved mother of pearl buttons run down the front. Piping is set along the tops of each pocket for the perfect finish. The skirt is in excellent condition and there is a note on the jacket below
Both the dress and jacket are unlined with beautifully finished interior seams. The jacket closes with buttons down the front and the skirt closes with a zipper. There are some small grazes to the top layer of the wool on the jacket primarily on the back of the shoulder, one on the sleeve and a tiny spot near the piping of the pocket. They do not go all the way through and most likely could be re-woven perfectly. Priced at half of what it would be otherwise. Please see the photos after the label shot
