1961 Iconic Skirt Suit

| /

IT DOES NOT GET MORE ICONIC than this 1961 beige woven linen tweed skirt suit trimmed in raspberry red grosgrain ribbon and navy crochet border. This version was made exclusively for Holt Renfrew Canada. The same collection suit was worn by Elizabeth Taylor and Queen Paula of Belgium. The suit is the epitome of elegance and classic Chanel design. This version has lions head buttons, Mademoiselle Chanels zodiac sign, down the front of the jacket, on the 4 jacket pockets, the cuffs and on the exaggerated waistband. Stitched detail on the skirt creates a pleated A-line effect. Silk lined with Chanel and Holt Renfrew labels intact. In excellent vintage condition. This is an opportunity to own a piece of history with the option to wear, display or just enjoy its timeless beauty. Documented instant heirloom, an authentic and fabulous 1961 Chanel treasure. Fits like a US size 4-6.
