Elinor Simmons for Malcolm Starr Satin Jumpsuit With Jacket, circa 1970

About

Sleek, sophisticated and stylish! This Elinor Simmons design for Malcolm Starr offers all three packed into one fabulous evening ensemble. The simple ivory satin jumpsuit zips and hooks at the back with lingerie style skinny straps and is accompanied by a tunic style jacket. The jacket features a lattice style pattern in a complimentary ivory fabric with a sheer nude outline flecked with gold threading and accented with rhinestone encrusted buttons at the front. The silhouette is reminiscent of the Nehru styles popular in the same era and gives the sophisticated look a hint of mod fashion. A matching long skinny satin belt can be worn on the outside of the jacket or on the jumpsuit. Fabulous as an ensemble but just as much fun as separates ... consider wearing the jumpsuit with a statement necklace paired with a bolero and the jacket works well as a mini dress with a nude slip to line it. CONDITION At first glance, the ensemble appears to be in great condition though there are some issues. The jumpsuit is in very good condition with a faint discoloration at the top of the bodice shown in photograph 18 which is darker on the inside lining which is not visible when worn and shown in photograph 19. I actually could not see the discoloration except in bright daylight. The jacket has age related discolorations across the shoulders and particularly down one sleeve as shown in photograph 15. These discolorations were from storage and and due to years of dust. They improved with a professional cleaning but still show in bright sunlight. There is also a stain on the jacket near the front right hem shown in photograph 13. It sounds like a laundry list but overall it is a great looking ensemble and an unusually sophisticated look from one of my favorite vintage labels. SIZING & MEASUREMENTS The size is not marked though the ensemble best fits a modern size 4 - 6 with attention to the following measurements. The jumpsuit may actually be best for a size 6 but please note that the jacket has 'skinny' sleeves by design and was a perfect fit for the size 4 mannequin.
