1970s Adolfo Mint Green Wool Knit Skirt and Jacket



This wonderful example of Adolfo's eye for design features an interesting textured knit in which some of the yarn is looser than others to give an "exposed" look about it. It is decorated with designer cording around the hem, pockets, sleeves, and collar (see image detail). The fit is relaxed with lightly padded broad shoulders. The pencil skirt features similar details as the top and has an elastic waist band. All topped off with gold buttons. Wear them together or separately. Fun Fact: Despite Adolfo's expansive contributions to knitwear, he actually got his start as millinery and won a Coty Award for his hats in 1955. Adolfo was a Cuban born American fashion designer who began as a milliner in the 1950's. He was an apprentice at The House of Chanel and The House of Balenciaga until his friend Bill Blass gave him a loan and he opened his Millinery house in 1963. He went on to design couture garments in the 1970's and 1980's. Jacket Measurements Skirt Measurements Length: 22" Length: 26" Bust: 36" Waist: 28" Waist: 32" Hips: 38"
