Pink and Gold Jacquard A-Line Dress and Coat Set - Jacome Estate, 1960s

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The spit-and-image of an early Oleg Cassini, this is the kind of well-bred ensemble a young Jackie Kennedy would have worn for official visits in 1962. Its sharp A-line silhouette and half-buttoning double breasted coat practically beg for a walk in the Rose Garden.

*From the personal collection of department store heiress Estela Jácome.*

Matching A-line coat and dress ensemble of heavyweight pink and gold metallic jacquard. Dress features ballet neck, sleeveless bodice and two rows of wide self piping at waist; rear nylon zipper closure with top hook and eye. Lined in transparent nylon net; all interior edges bound. Coat features matching A-line silhouette, single row of waist piping and pointed spread collar; double breasted front closure with six square covered buttons and two hidden couture snaps at throat and waist. Single ornamental square covered button at each wrist; fully lined in pink nylon.
