Sweet Disorder Vintage

1950s Lilli Ann Velvet Trimmed Suit

Sold out

Breathtaking black and white Lilli Ann suit circa 1955. Sumptuous velvet trims the wide collar and big velvet polka dots add a touch of playfulness to the knockout silhouette. Lilli Ann was started in San Francisco in 1933 by Adolph Schuman, and the company was named for his wife, Lillian. It became known for their youthful, beautifully designed suits and coats. This stunning suit is fashioned in a luxurious medium weight blend of silk and wool, extremely fine with a subtle sheen. It is lightweight with no stiffness or heaviness. The construction is impeccable with a flared peplum, fabric covered buttons, winged cuffs and a beautifully tailored pencil skirt. The velvet polka dots are actually inset into the wool rather than appliquéd over it, and the velvet trim of the collar is a tiered edge. You just don't see this level of construction and attention to detail outside couture fashion today. The jacket is fully lined in black silk crepe, the skirt partially lined. I adore the dramatic silhouette and the playful twist to the femme fatale vibe. The black and white color palette is so iconic and timeless. It's even more gorgeous in person, the photos flatten it a little. This suit is in excellent condition and appears scarcely if ever worn.
