This rich dark plaid designer blouse by Valentino is a beautiful fabrication of silk and gold lame, with a subtle, tiny overall stripe and is trimmed in shiny gold piping around the Peter Pan collar, along the front and back yoke seams, and around the sleeve hems.
This has a hidden front button placket, with only the top button showing; the buttons at the wrists both show as well, of course. The buttons are a matte gold color that are pointed, shaped like tiny tops.
This has deeply tucked sleeve caps that are slightly padded, which adds width the the shoulders, and flanges at the high front and back yokes for added fullness, too (dating this to the late 70s, early 80s).
