Avocado / moss green 2 pc MOD dress & coat set from the 60s by famed designer Mila Schon... and it's wonderful!

ABOUT THE DESIGNER & LABEL (see photo): Mila Schon was known for perfect cuts & double face wools - she was a perfectionist who worked with honored classical structure to create clean, modernist lines.

She was from a family of wealthy Yugoslavian aristocrats who fled to Italy to escape Communism. In 1959, Schon (pretend there are 2 fots above the 'o') launched her business. She'd previously gained a love of fashion as a couture client at Balenciaga. Some his influences, along with those of Dior and Schiaparelli can be seen in her early work.

Mila was showing on the catwalk by 1965 - construction of her tailoring is highlighted by its simplicity.

The dress also carries a label indicating 100% Virgin Wool & Made in Italy (real leather trims of course) and this is a vintage size 12.

MORE DETAILS:

~ Extremely durable and heavy double face Italian wool knit
~ Dress has exquisite seaming; round leather neckline; and original belt
~ Skirt of dress is short and slightly flared; sleeves are 3/4 length
