1970s Gucci Wool Skirt and Top - size 8/10

 

 

 

A classic suit look - lightweight wool flannel  in a wide stripe of black and heathered charcoal grey with caramel pinstripes - rendered extra-ordinary by Gucci.  The skirt is pleated from the waistband with a side zip and button closure, and hidden inseam pockets at either hip.  The top is straight cut, with a soft raglan shoulder and a split sleeve accented from shoulder almost  to the cuff with micro-pleated black silk insert which lends almost a leg-o-mutton effect.  Pleated black silk crepe de chine also accents the neckline and forms a high, stand up collar which has a single button closure at the throat.  There is a 2.5" split at either side at the shirt hem. Naturally, Gucci details abound:  Delicate grey shell buttons are etched with the double-G, the skirt hanger-loops are tiny gold Gucci ID chains. We like this outfit belted, and picture it cinched in with a simple wide belt (not included), but it works equally well with your own wide or skinny version, or just hanging straight.   Bust 42", waist 40", hip40", shoulder approx 16", sleeve 24.5", length 26".   Skirt waist 28", hips 43", length 30". Both pieces are unlined and in excellent condition. $295
