1960s Malcolm Starr Ringmaster Skirt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

I love these Malcolm Starr pieces - they are little works of art and really the best of the whole sixties arts and crafts movement. With the current trend back to maxis they also seem even more relevant. There is something shockingly fresh about wearing an elaborate and colorful maxi skirt with a chic modern top and shoes. This one is the classic Ringmaster skirt and depicts the classic animals of the circus with the big top colors all around. Lions, panthers - all the bog cats are represented and made of felt and faux fur - all in 3d! An amazing combination of color and textures its in wonderful condition!



Waist: 13" flat across from side seam to side seam

Skirt length: 41" from waist seam to hem



Fully lined in cream silky rayon, it closes with a back painted metal zipper and two flat hook & eye at the waist. There is a smudge of discoloration on one area of the cream but nothing distracting. It should be dry cleaned when cleaned again in the future.



Modern Sizing equivalent: XS-SML (0-6)
