Item details

Vintage from the 1960s

Phenomenal example of the work of Marion Foale and Sally Tuffin in the 1960s, straight from my personal collection, this skirt suit was named 'Natasha' and exhibited at the Foale and Tuffin exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum in 2009 (please excuse my terrible photo from back then!). Made from a plush striped velvet in the lushest red, trimmed with Persian lamb at the neck and around the hem of the skirt. Simple but stunning, this is quintessential Swinging London and also an incredibly wearable piece.
