1957 Traina-Norell Red Black Wool Cropped Double-Breasted Jacket & Dress Suit
This exquisite 1957 Traina-Norell designer dress ensemble, in midweight rich melton-wool & silk, exemplifies their signature blend of couture-level quality with quintessentially American style—elegant in its simplicity. Dress bodice has an alluring low-cut plunge with seductive sculpted shelf-bust. The skirting has a classic a-line construction that emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. I adore the matching cropped double-breasted military inspired jacket which can also be worn as an amazing separate. As pointed out in the book "Couture: The Great Designers", Norell had a profound influence on the ready-to-wear industry and on younger American designers by insisting that off-the-rack clothing be as fine as made-to-order. The masterful cut and superb quality of this garment more than meets his exacting standards. Measurments Dress Bust:34-35 inches Waist:30 inches Hips:up to 37 inches Total Length:35 inches Jacket Sleeve Length:23 inches Total Length:12 inches This Traina-Norell designer ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips or stains. Perfectly working back metal zipper and original buttons. Only signs of age are some minor surface moth nibbles to the jacket and shortening of the hemline. Priced accordingly. A rare piece of fashion history.
