This is a vintage mid 1960s era Italian couture orange wool suit made in Italy for Ogilvy's of Montreal.  Both the jacket and skirt have a "Bianco" label sewn into it. I haven't been able to find out anything about this particular Italian couturier, but this is an excellent quality suit. The suit appears to be entirely hand sewn. The jacket is made in a double breasted style with a narrow collar. It has eight round black plastic buttons on the front. The jacket has dropped shoulders and the skirt is cut in an above the knee length. Both pieces are full lined in orange rayon acetate.
