This is a vintage red suit in size small by famed designer Arnold Scaasi! Cropped cherry red jacket with covered buttons and matching trumpet skirt, Label Lovers will covet this one. Scaasi was a top fashion designer for over 50 years. He designed for at least 4 First Ladies and many movie stars. including Elizabeth Taylor and Aretha Franklin. Barbara Streisand famously wore his black beaded pant suit when she won the Academy Award in 1969. His designs were elegant and expensive and are still sought after today. You can even find his clothing in the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
This 2 piece suit is bright cherry red and features a jacket with long sleeves, 5 covered buttons, cropped waist and quilted satin cuffs. The matching trumpet skirt hugs the waist and hips then flares at the knee. Skirt is a mid knee length. Both pieces are fully lined.
CONDITION: No stains or snags. The only sign of wear that I noted in some slight pulling on interior jacket lining and a slight depression if you look closely at buttons, most likely from storage. This set was lovingly cherished.
