1990s Pale Peach Lace & Knit Valentino
Pieces like this make a girl want to weep with joy! The first thing you must know about this couture quality constructed ensemble is that is literally weighs only a few ounces. It is like holding air. The finest lingerie colored peach lace adds texture and interest. Fused into the lace is a soft silk mohair yarn that seems to extend and create the hem of the to and skirt like magic. The contrast of textures with the two fabric is wonderful. It also gives it a feeling of substance but again there is virtually no weight to the set at all - it is like wearing bits of air! The top is cut very simply - tank style and the skirt a simple A line to the knee. A belt came with the set and I have slung it around the hips. It is an extraordinary example of couture level textiles and the original price if this set was 5 times the listed price, Excellent, unworn condition
