"Red Rose Brocade" Vintage 1960's Red Rose Brocade Skirt Suit UK 8-10 US 4-6


A classic silhouette rendered in a vibrant red rayon brocade with a pattern roses, this original 1960's skirt suit is just the perfect addition to your tailored wardrobe.

The V shaped neckline of the jacket is framed by a soft turned down collar, which draws in centrally as it threads through a matching red brocade loop, creating a soft bow detail along the front of the décolletage. The simple shoulder line, lets off the mid length inset sleeves. The box cut of the bodice is accented by tailored darts along the bust-line, which frame the central matching brocade covered button fastenings along the centre front of the jacket. 

The matching skirt, sits perfectly beneath the jacket and boasts a simple fitted waistband, from which double tailored darts radiate along either side of the front of the skirt . The classic straight line of the skirt, completes this ensemble in a timeless and iconic 1960's silhouette. This suit is not lined.
