LABEL: Adolfo at Saks Fifth Avenue, All Wool
This feminine 80s skirt suit by Adolfo combines off-white wool bouclé knit with ivory-and-black wool braid trim, in a style reminiscent of vintage Chanel suits—at a fraction of the price! The slightly boxy, hip-length, cardigan-style jacket features 4 patch pockets, medium-sized shoulder pads, and shiny gold buttons that both fasten the jacket in front, and decorate the bracelet-length sleeves. The jacket hem is curved in front, so that is is a bit longer at the sides and back. The elastic-waist skirt has a faux-wrap design, trimmed with more gold buttons on the left side of the “wrap”, and a vertical row of braid trim that extends to the flap or kick pleat at the hem, front and back. Both pieces are unlined and have a moderate amount of give to the knit fabric. This Adolfo vintage suit is in excellent condition, with no flaws to note.
