The large wrap collar merges into long lapels, which run down to the hem of the jacket and there are functional slit pockets at the waist. Inside, the jacket is lined in purple crepe and has a maker’s label for Marcé. The matching skirt is cut in a slight A line shape and fastens with a metal side zipper and button closure above.

The suit is in good condition with only a few very faint marks and some discolouration inside the collar as pictured. There are also two small pinholes and some staining to the jacket lining.
