Product Description

This is a fabulous example of 1960s Hong Kong made British glamour wear.Update it over a white silk shirt!Black sequins are trimmed with gold braid embroidered with faceted turquoise beads, the trompe l’oeil, single breasted traditional pointed waistcoat style of the top unzips at the back with a full open-ended zip. There is no waistline shaping typical of 1960s tops. We have often seen this design feature on top end Hong Kong Export evening wear of the period.The knitted base of the sequinned body ensures lovely fit without bulky seams.The six buttons are beaded passmenterie, very reminiscent of Haskell jewellery.Original metal YKK Zipper
