Spectacular 1990s does 1970s wool plaid skirt suit by Lorena Conti Paris. This suit was made in France and it shows. The era is somewhat of a mystery because Lorena Conti existed from approximately 1977 to 2006. The style is TOTALLY 1970s from the jacket's VERY wide notched lapel to the length of the jack and the skirt. However, the sequins on the skirt suggest it's newer.
The plaid pattern is predominately lavender with really cool hits of lime, light blue and brown. The jacket has long lines and a slight equestrian/safari style with side hip pockets with very detailed flaps (see photos). the jacket is double breasted with very wide notched lapel. 4 light lavender wood look button front double breasted closure and a self tie belt. No vent. Fully lined in lavender.
Below the knee skirt has a hidden back zip on YKK zipper with lavender metal pull. Narrow waistband and long lean lines. The wow factor comes from the subtle green iridescent sequins that follow the lines of the plaid pattern of the skirt. Back kick pleat. Skirt has a pink mesh lining. So cute!
