1970s Missoni Knit Jacket & Culotte Set

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Rare and fabulous set from the infamous house of Missoni! It is so hard to come across the really great Missoni pieces - collectors hoard them like treasures (which they are). This has everything you want in a Missoni set. It is young, it is fresh, it speaks of the times it was made in and yet it is still classic and timeless. Wide cropped to the knee culottes work perfectly with the matching jacket - both are done in a beautiful and classic Missoni knit chevron. The pants have hidden side pockets and drape perfectly. The way they tie is very interesting - ties attach tot he tops of each pocket that wrap around the waist! The jacket is a dream - it has ties at the waist and at the neck, which allows you to style it as you please - wear it open or closed. The knit is a nice weight - it's not heavy - you could easily wear this on a cooler summer evening and then again in the fall with fantastic boots. Really a special and quite rare set! Excellent condition!

Jacket:
Shoulder: 20" flat across form seam to seam (meant to sit off shoulder)
Bust: 21" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 21" flat across the back from side seam to side seam - you can cinch it in quite a bit with the tie
Length: 22" from mid-neck at the back to bottom hem
Sleeves: 25" from shoulder to bottom of cuff

Pants:
Waist: will stretch 13-16" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 22" flat across from side seam to side seam with give
Length: 28" from waist to bottom hem of pant
Inseam: 16.5"

Both pieces are unlined. The pants slip on and there is an interesting wrapped portion at the front that has ties that go around the waist. The jacket has the same ties - one at the neck and one at the waist and both can be pulled to cinch in the fabric as much or little as you like. The outfit should be dry cleaned when cleaned again in the future.
