About

Vintage 1960s James Galanos blue Prince of Wales check fine wool suit consisting of a soft tailored jacket over a sleeveless dress. A superb example of Hollywood couture this classic 60s suit is fully of quirky details with huge pockets at the front of the jacket that fasten with two sets of large blue/grey buttons. The same buttons are found at bust and hip level on the front of the dress, where they are purely decorative. The organza lined, waisted dress also has an unusual curved neckline, it fastens at the back with a zip and has smaller buttons to fasten vents at the side of the skirt. The jacket is worn open on top and is lined in a beautiful cream silk. Would work best on someone with a larger bust and small waist, but there is plenty of room for alterations if necessary. Both pieces are in excellent condition with no noticeable flaws.
