1960s Mollie Parnis Silk & Sequin Gold Flared Pant Set

I have had the twin of this little sequin set pass through my hands once or twice on the past and each time I am thrilled to have it as it is just such a great set. The silhouette feels fresh right now too and its well made and fabulous. Mollie Parnis is one of my favorite American designers and this little set is one of the reasons why. The base is a light stretch lurex knit that will move and stretch to drape and cling to the body in the best possible way. Over this, hundreds of gold sequins have been sewn into place so the entire set gleams and glitters in the light. The cut is spectacular - the fabric means it forms to the body but then the sleeves and pant legs are flared out and wide. The lightness of the fabric means that these drape and move fabulously too and it all adds up to a long and lean silhouette. Excellent condition.

Both piece are unlined and have some stretch to the fabric. The tunic closes with a back metal and nylon zipper and the pants have elastic at the waist.
