Vintage 50s Block Print Asymmetrical Jacket and Dress Ensemble -
Brick pattern? Block print? Stamped squares? What do you see in this fabulous '50s printed dress and jacket ensemble? We see an irregular pattern in contrasting colors that resembles our favorite faux gator handbag. This silk textile is simply fabulous! The deep navy contrasts well with a rich shade of brick red. (It's a little on the pink side of the spectrum.)
This suit is labeled Modern Miss and it's available in a hard-to-find larger size.The set features a short sleeve dress with an interesting notched neckline that has a single decorative self-fabric button and fringe trim. (Cute!) The fun fringe detail is repeated on jacket's turn back cuffs and scarf neckline. Wow. What a neckline this is. It has a pull-through scarf that is inserted into a large button hole. The scarf/tie is also accented with that fringed fabric detail.
The jacket is darted to fit through the waist and lightly flare just below the waist. The asymmetrical closure makes this a sculptural and dramatic work of art.
Whether you're looking for a unique option to wear to the office, a nice luncheon suit, or something classically chic to wear to your next day to evening event, this ensemble is a standout. It's dramatic and so very '50s!
Very good to good. The sleeve shows fading on one area. You might not notice that until you're right on top of it. Our photos make it look really obvious and it's not at all as faded as it looks. The lights really washed it out and it looks worse than it is. It's the reason why the price on this is so friendly. There is a shot of a slubbed area on the dress that is a little more irregular than it ought to be. You will not be disappointed in this.
Navy with a pinky reddish toned printFabric:
Silk (possibly a blend) that's slubbed--akin to Thai silk.
