1970s Adolfo Metallic Gold and Purple Silk Skirt & Top Set

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


I adore this wonderful two piece set. A set like this is always so versatile. Together they have the feel of a dress but you always can separate the pieces and wear them with other items to really get the most bang for your dollar. Both pieces are made form a light silk with metallic thread running through the fabric. On the top the palette is kept to two hues of gold and the cut is a simple, sleeveless tank. The skirt is a gorgeous combination of that same gold mixed with a purple silk that has an addition design of a more subtle gold and a green running over its surface. The skirt is fitted at the waist and then flows out. I love how the gold anchors the hem and ties int he top when they are worn together. The set has its original gold belt with huge purple silk cord tassels. Adolfo won a COTY award early on in his career as as milliner and a second one for woman's wear in 1969. His design work was impeccable and this is a wonderful example of that work. Excellent condition.

The top is unlined and the skirt has a full second interior layer made of the same gold lurex as the top and on the hem. The top buttons at the back neck with a fabric covered button and the skirt closes with a zipper and hook and eye at the waist. Pocket on the hip of the skirt.
