This is a beautiful quality wraparound skirt, as one would expect from luxury brand Celine Paris. The skirt is cut in a slight A line with a knee length. It has two tan leather tabs, each with three gold plated metal snaps that are embossed with the Celine sulky logo. One tab goes through a slit in the waistband to snap down to the male snaps, while the other simply snaps down on the opposite side. The skirt is fully lined with fabric that is woven with the Celine sulky logo.
Age: early 1970s
Label: Celine Paris with the horse and sulky logo. Celine was founded in 1945 by husband and wife team Richard and Celine Vipiana as a children’s shoe store. In 1967, they presented a line of elegant sportswear and by the 1970s, Celine is known as a luxury house, producing high quality fashion garments.
Material: Wool and leather
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a small size. Please note the following measurements for fit:
Waist: 24” around when all snaps are done up if you undo one snap it becomes 26 inches and when you undo two it becomes 27 3/4. I have tried to show how it appears in the last 5 photos with the snaps undone.
Hips: 36” around
Length: 23 1/2” long, measured flat
Condition: It's in very good condition with no wear, tear or stains except for one very light pinhead sized brown spot to the lower left side (see last close-up photo). I have not had this skirt dry cleaned, so chances are that they would be able to remove this, although it really is hardly noticeable. Otherwise, this skirt looks like it saw little use, is very clean, and was very well cared for over the years.
This is a beautifully made skirt - excellent quality and classic look....
