From the legendary Neiman-Marcus (back in the days when it was independent and truly deluxe), this vintage two-piece suit is a timeless classic, because of its nautical spirit. The graceful gored skirt in dark navy blue is matched to a blouson jacket with sailor-style detailing in creamy winter white. I particularly love the enormous collar and pretty brass buttons.
The outfit would look very classy at work and can be worn by anyone between about a size 2 and 6, because the fabric is a wool knit and elastic is at the waist of each piece. Skirt length is slightly below the knee. Condition is lovely, showing on close inspection only some restitching by hand at a few skirt seams, nothing to detract. The Neiman-Marcus Maisonette label is inside the neck and a label inside the skirt credits designer Joanna Nelson. Provenance is a Dallas area estate and dating would be late 1960s or early 1970s.
