Original 1950s 50s Vintage Pale Pastel Pink Cotton Summer Suit by Life Savers Kirkland Hall
This fabulous suit was made from pale pink cotton in the 1950s. It was made by Kirkland Hall in collaboration with the American sweet company Life Savers. These suits were made in the colours of the sweet flavours, this particular example being pale pink. We love a suit with a great history as well as fabulous style. The suit was cut with lightly padded shoulders, a gently nipped waist and large patch pockets. The notched lapel collar leads to a single row of three mother of pearl buttons that have also been used on the large patch pockets and to finish off the sleeves. Inside, the blazer is unlined as you would expect from a summer weight suit and has the collectible Life Savers Suit by Kirkland Hall maker’s label (you know you want to collect all the colours, don’t you?!). The matching skirt was cut in a slight A line and fastens with an original metal side zipper and a button closure above.
Shoulders: 16” seam to seam
Waist: 26” (just under 2” space to move the button)
Length: 28 1/2” plus 2 1/4” hem
The suit is in very good condition with no issues to note.
