The family owned business of Basi S.A. had been operating since the early 1940's in Barcelona, Spain specializing in luxury knitwear. In 1986 the fashion house of Armand Basi was born, with Juste de Nin behind its creation. Juste de Nin's ready-to-wear is recognized for its Mediterranean influences, its elaborate detailing, its use of color and simple shapes. The vest measures 17 1/2" across the bust line. The pants measure 15 1/2" across the waist line and 18 1/2" across the hip line. The pants are marked Size 11 and Size 40. Both pieces are in excellent vintage condition.
