Janice Wainwright Vintage Pleated 2-piece Ensemble in Blue, UK10-12
A glamorous mid 1970s vintage 2-piece skirt and top by Janice Wainwright, in ultra fine pleated blue silk mix.
This exceptional ensemble looks like pure Issey Miyake Pleats, in a lustrous silky fabric which is blue on the surface and an indefinable pinkish red on the underside which shines through the surface giving a two-tone effect.
The top has a deep V front and is boxy in shape, sleeveless with the shoulders dropped. A drawstring waist with fine silk thread makes it adaptable to various shapes and sizes. It falls low at the back, coming up shorter in the front, with a ruffled hem which shows the glorious colour beneath. The skirt is below knee length, also with a drawstring waist.
A truly beautiful garment.
