About

An amazing example of Jacques Fath love of the hourglass silhouette, this beautifully tailored skirt suit will look fabulous in or outside of the boardroom. The shoulder pads, nipped in waist and padded hips of the jacket create a highly flattering silhouette, exaggerating the curves of the body. Constructed in red wool crepe, both the jacket and skirt are fully lined, with the skirt fastening with a zip to the side and the jacket with buttons on the front. Just add a structured handbag and heels to finish the look.
