Vintage 50s silk metallic gold, silver, copper brocade pencil skirt and bolero jacket bohemian dress suit.
This bohemian pencil skirt and bolero jacket is made of the most decadent of materials. Silk iridescent shimmering metallic gold, silver and copper threads construct the ethereal brocade, black silk crepe lines the jacket and lines the skirt in a half slip. The metallic thread is unusual because it is not stiff like most metallic thread but soft silk thread. I could just get lost in this gorgeous fantastic brocade. A gorgeous tapestry brocade ivory silver, gold and burnt copper on a black background, the threads are like gestural stylized brush marks with a mysterious delicate movement with large blooming lotus flowers with phsycdelic stylized petals. Looks like tapestry art of a secret garden or a fantastical night when the stars fall out of the night sky and when they hit the earth's atmosphere they turn into glimmering shining gold spun blossoms of ethereal light falling in the sky to cover secret lovers in fields with dresses made of star light turned organic. Yes, the brocade work is so exquisite that one could write on ode of it but the brocade is only one awesome aspect of this ensemble; the construction is simply gorgeous and figure flattering. The minimalist fitted panels that construct this garment give a sheik and elegant silhouette. The pencil skirt is very fitted for an hourglass shape but it is easy to move in, there is a kick pleat in the back and two pleats on the side so that the draping is fitted but the movement is not limited. Skirt has a fitted panel for the waist band with darted panels around the skirt for a sleek flat falling fit. The fitted pencil skirt with side zipper and matching button. The zipper is metal.
3/4 sleeves, falls with length of short bordello waist. This might be a handmade piece: has a fabric hand sewed label that says Gerda Collins Martinsville N.J. There are five black plastic buttons down front.
There is some fading on the inside lining only does not effect outside. Fade spots are at the arm pit, does not effect the look when the jacket is open. Other then that unnoticeable issue in very good condition!
Great day to night look, wear to the office then change accessories for night
Would look great paired with a plain black tank for your day look and could be dressed up with a ruffly poet shirt or a red or blue bombshell shirt to play off of the golden tones. This look has a bohemian rocker edge to it but you could still wear it at work. If you are an artist forced into a business meeting this is the look for you! Wear this while showing off your portfolio then go on a fantastic adventure with your magical purple crayon without even having to change!
