This is an ultra-sophisticated, extravagantly designed, Valentino evening suit with soft tailoring, sequins, and ribbon-worked florets covering both shoulders. Valentino made his mark early with his intricately detailed clothing and tastefully body conscious silhouettes. His designs always attracted high profile customers including Jacqueline Onassis and Elizabeth Taylor. This suit has been exquisitely designed with a single snap for the jacket's closure and wide chiffon sashes surrounding the waist and tied into a large floppy bow. The jacket has wide lapels embellished with sequins. Both the jacket and the skirt have been lined with a double layer of black silk chiffon which peeks below each cuff and also below the skirt's hem line. The suit is overtly glamorous in its design, yet tastefully executed, which is an important feature of Italian design. It is a Size 6 and is in excellent, never worn, condition.
