Sweet Disorder Vintage

1952 Documented Lilli Ann Bell Sleeve Suit

Sold out

Size: Medium
Condition: Excellent
Stunning documented 1952 suit by Lilli Ann. Iconic pleated bell sleeves adorned with rhinestone buckles. Shawl collar, nipped waist and fabulously tailored peplum emphasize the hourglass silhouette. Matching pencil skirt adds to the sizzle.
The fabric is the unmistakable Lilli Ann silk mohair blend in black with white. It is soft and lightweight with a gorgeous lustre and hand. Impeccable construction and tailoring rarely found today. Jacket fully lined in matching silk, skirt partially lined as was typical of the era.
Lilli Ann was started in San Francisco in 1933 by Adolph Schuman. He named his company for his wife, Lillian. It became known for the beautiful, elaborately designed suits and coats that are so coveted today.
This suit is such a showstopper and so elegant at the same time. An iconic masterpiece of the era.

This 1952 Lilli-Ann suit is in excellent condition with no damage, staining or alterations. The zipper in the skirt works perfectly. Label in the back of the neckline no longer present.
