Rare Original 1950s 50s Vintage Navy Blue Lilli Ann Blazer With Wrap Around Arrow Detailing
This amazing blazer was made from navy blue gabardine in the 1950s. In classic Lilli Ann style, the design is more reminiscent of the 1940s style with broad padded shoulders and a nipped waist. The notched lapel collar leads to a sharp V neckline and a single button fastening at the waist. But the real design feature are the three wrap around arrow shaped stripes at the shoulder, waist and hem. The length of these has been offset to create even more of a design statement. This piece undoubtedly will be an absolute show stopper whether worn over a plain dress or skirt or, with my personal preference, wide leg trousers! Inside, the blazer is lined in navy crepe and features the classic and highly collectible Lilli Ann maker’s label as well as a retailer’s label for McDonald’s of Syracuse and a National Recovery Board tag.
Bust: 34” (tight 36” due to cut)
Waist: 26 1/2”
Shoulders: 15 1/2” seam to seam
The blazer is in very good condition with only a single small hole in the arrow pattern at the hem as pictured.
