Gorgeous 1970s Valentino Floral Printed Red Silk Jacket and Skirt Suit Set

This gorgeous little set is an easy, more feminine version of the traditional suit. The base is that beautiful Valentino red that is covered in a spray of pretty little flowers in bright and happy colors. Even though it is softer in feel then a more traditional suit, it still has the elegant cut and line you expect from Valentino's work. The jacket has a lovely spring feel to it with shorter sleeves and a deep V front. I am almost hesitant to call is a jacket because it could easily pass for that or as a top. It is constructed to skim over the body with shaping through the waist by elastic that is gathered all the way around. Under that is a slight flare at the hem. A pretty set of glossy red buttons at the waist detail the front as well and string padding in each shoulder give it structure. The skirt has a simple pencil shape and has pockets on each hip. The fabric used for both pieces is a beautiful light silk crepe that give the pieces just enough weight to hold the shape and serve as a beautiful backdrop to the color. And it is even better in person. Excellent condition.

Both the dress and jacket are fully lined in a textured red silk of very high quality. The jacket closes with hidden snaps and a buttons at the waist. There is elastic set into the waist seam for ease of fit and shaping. Padding in each shoulder. The skirt closes with a side set zipper and hook and eye on the waistband. It pockets on each hip.
