Spectacular perfection in a PLUS size from Gianfranco Ferre Forma! The most amazing thing about this suit--aside from that it appears to have never been worn--are the optional removable sheer silk collar and cuffs which give the wearer the option of taking this suit from day to night--or to a very special event such as wedding! Made in Italy, the jacket has a long line with padded shoulders, long notched lapel and one cream colored button front closure and two pockets at the hip. The sheer collar and French cuffs are removable.
This exquisite ensemble was made in Italy. The jacket is paired with a matching calf-length straight silk skirt. The waist has has darts on the front on each side and the back half of the waistband is elasticized with a side zipper that closes at the top with a pink button. The back of the skirt has 5 in kick pleat. Fully lined.
Ferre is not only a famed designer in his own right, but also as a former lead designer at Dior.
