1940's Don Loper Navy-Blue Silk Tailored Hourglass Noir Pencil-Skirt Suit

About

Don Loper, famously based in Hollywood, created gorgeous clothing from the 1930's into the 1960's. He designed the costumes for several films such as "The Big Combo" and "Looking for Love". In 1955 he was featured in an episode of the "I Love Lucy" show entitled – 'The Fashion Show'. Loper was known for his lavish fabrics and celebrity glamour. This stunning navy-blue pure silk two-piece ensemble is a perfect example of his genius. The jacket is a stunning button-down plunge design with 3/4-length cuffed sleeves. I love the pleated couture detail gracing the neckline and shelf-bust! The narrowing wiggle-skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of suit you will reach for anytime you want to look like a starlet! Measurements Jacket Bust:36-37 inches Waist:29 inches Sleeve Length:16 inches Total Length:21 inches Skirt Waist:28 inches Hips:38 inches Total Length:30 inches This Don Loper Beverly Hills designer set is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working metal skirt-zipper. This item is over 60 years old and is truly exquisite.
