We are all big fans of vintage Margaretha Ley for Escada pieces here at Modig, and this beautiful bright yellow and black skirt suit is a good example of the quality and unique style elements we love about her pieces!
The 3 piece suit includes a yellow longline jacket, a yellow silk blouse top, and a black pencil skirt. The yellow wool jacket has a pointed black collar and black wool button hole openings, with the buttons skipping every other button hole, which adds such a unique detail! Escada buttons are always special and these are iridescent glass globes in gold tone monogrammed casings. There is an extra button attached to the label of both the jacket and the blouse. The cuffs of the sleeves have the same faux button detail. The front of the blazer has flap pockets (sewn closed) and the shoulders are structured with shoulder pads. The jacket is fully lined in monogrammed rayon fabric.
The round neck, sleeveless top is in a pretty yellow silk with black trim with very thin shoulder pads sewn in for a bit of structure and there is a keyhole opening at the back of the collar secured by two buttons.
The fully lined black wool pencil skirt has a small kick pleat slit near the hem, a narrow waistband with a double button and a metal zipper down the center back seam for closure.
This beautiful suit was made in Germany in the late 1980's or early 1990's of 100% Wool and 100% Silk with rayon lining in the jacket. The jacket is labeled 34, top 36, and skirt 38, but we estimate this outfit would best fit a modern size 6.
CONDITION: In excellent condition. Small tan spot on the left panel of the blazer and minor vertical fabric pull on the right side of the skirt.
