This is a great 2 piece woven silk and wool skirt suit with the vintage Margaretha Ley Escada label. The crosshatch weave pattern of the fabric is in blue and yellow, giving off an overall green appearance to the outfit.
This vintage suit has a fully lined jacket with 3 Escada signature buttons down the front for closure and front pockets with ribbon trim with a decorative knot. The pencil skirt has a back center zipper with inside button for closure and the same ribbon and knot detail trim at the waist that is found on the pockets of the jacket.
We love suits because they are such a great way to acquire not only outfits, but fabulous separates to pair with other items in your closet! This skirt can be worn with a simple white shirt and the jacket can be paired with jeans. Suits give you so many options for a great price! If you've never owned an Escada suit, you will be amazed at the quality and attention to detail throughout the pieces.
Both pieces are labeled a European size 40 which we approximate is a US size 10, but please always use the measurements as a guide. Made in Germany of 60% New Wool and 40% Silk.
The most accurate color representation is found in the close up images of the pocket and button.
