Very Striking is this brightly colored wool plaid 2 piece suit from designer GEOFFREY BEENE. The wool plaid gives the appearance of being hand loomed. The brightly colored yarns have some bulk and has a very soft hand. The fabric is woven on the diagonal and one can see every yarn. The bright colors in the plaid are Magenta and Green with accents of light gold and black.
The very mini wrap skirt and jacket are lined with magenta. The union label is round and scalloped with white ground in colors red and blue. This is from the late 1970's. The bow tie style GEOFFREY BEENE label is not seen much. The waistband of the skirt is made with magenta silk satin.
The long striking jacket is edged in wool fringe. The buttons look like died mother-of-pearl high grade plastic with a gold-tone metal "X" in the center. The large patch pockets also have fringe trim. The jacket also features shoulder pads. Both the skirt and the jacket are in excellent vintage condition. They have been gently worn and well cared for.
