Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Sant' Angelo was the winner of two Coty Awards and two Council of Fashion Designers of America honors and was known for his innovation and pioneering use of stretch fabrics. He has had an entire museum exhibit dedicated to his work and career and is firmly entrenched as one of the great designers. His work captured a moment in fashion history and his love of color and strong lines will forever be collectible. Pieces reside in museums worldwide. This is an amazing skirt and best set that showcases his love for color and that nod to using fabrics that were up to this point in time, largely not used. Made of a what is almost a canvas weight cotton mixed with leather trim both pieces are spectacular. His signature contrasting bursts of color are masterfully used here to showcase the cut and lines of each piece. The skirt is very full and wide but falls sleekly once on. It is made of colorful panels of cotton with each defined by bands of stamp cut green leather. This same color combination and leather trim is used on the fitted vest. Sant' Angelo once said, "I am not a fashion designer but an artist who works in fashion engineer of color and form" This set shows us how true that statement is. Excellent condition and a rare, highly collectible piece.

Both pieces are unlined. The skirt and closes with a back painted, hand set metal zipper and hook and eye at the waist band. The vest snaps to close at the front. The set has been specialty leather cleaned. Note that I actually have a photo of this set in an editorial from the time period but cannot for the life of me find it. I will eventually though!
