This signature vintage 1960s Adolfo suit gives a nod to Chanel. A true classic, this wool herringbone 2 piece has a flattering and fitted shape that will always be in style. The contrast detailing and gold buttons add a little feminine flare, while the high waist gives you an hourglass figure. Both pieces look great separately or when worn together.
Adolfo (Sardina) (b. 1933) began his career as a milliner. Not long after, Adolfo began to design clothing to complement the hats his models wore, and by the mid-1960s his celebrity clients ranged from the Duchess of Windsor, Gloria Vanderbilt, and Betsy Bloomingdale to Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Nancy Reagan (who wore a red Adolfo dress, currently in the Smithsonian, to her husband’s second inaugural ball). His custom clothing was available both in his salon and in the Adolfo boutique at Saks Fifth Avenue. (source: Vintage Fashion Guild)
