Vintage Camel Wool Knit Suit 1950S 36-24-36 Ben Gershel By Robert Knox

$ 199.00

Gorgeous 100% wool knit in camel makes up this lovely vintage suit- label Ben Gershel by Robert Knox- simply fabulous designer.

It is a perfect vintage suit- the details include a fitted bodice with peplum created by the pleats at the waist; short cuffed sleeves and light but large shoulder pads; Oversized MOP button closure, with the same button on the included matching belt. It has an attached cream coloured silk faille " pussy bow" at the neck. It also has a long yoke, front and back, to which there are flap pockets attached in front. It is all trimmed with faille piping. It is lined in matching silk and has dressmaker details you will love.

The skirt is a straight pencil style, with a left side zip. Lined in the same silk as the jacket. No kick pleats or slits.

The label is as above, and it also has a Mollie Abrahamson label. This was part of an exquisite estate of clothing, most of which were designers of the 1940s and 1950's.
 

Makes me think of some of the rich, lovely, vintage movies of late such as " The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" and " Breathe"- breathtaking vintage costuming!
