This wonderful suit was part of a private fashion collection, covering over 150 years, and was stored the next season following its purchase, I’m told is was an unwanted gift!
As the suit is unlined, there is a good quantity of pure silk lining material which will come with the suit.

The collection was handed down through the ladies of the family and each added their own styles, to give a fab insight into the history of fashion. The suit has been shown in natural light for clarity and is completely untouched digitally. The suit has been freshly dry cleaned and is ready to wear.
