1990s Geoffrey Beene Suit with Applique

This is a fantastic suit from Geoffrey Beene and shows his love of sharp geometric shapes and love of adding pops of color onto a black base. The skirt is fitted and lean and the jacket has a strong silhouette that skims the torso and goes down and over the hip. The neck is high and all the closures are hidden so that you get this fantastic unbroken line. Onto the jacket are two abstract triangles of color that are top stitched - a green on the front and a burgundy one on the back. Each of these has a ribbon tie extending from a point and you wrap and tie these around to create some shape! Very graphic and very chic! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Both pieces are fully lined in silk and beautifully finished. The skirt closes with a hidden set zipper and the jacket closes with hidden buttons at the front.
