Vintage Gianni Versace Couture Red Wool Boucle Suit Ladies Size 6 Small
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a ladies’ suit made in Italy under the Gianni Versace Couture label. The suit was made while Gianni was still alive and dates to the Fall/Winter 1995 Collection - please view the last photo of Kristen McMenamy modelling the suit. It is made of red and black bouclé wool and lined in red rayon. The jacket is made with padded squared shoulders, a shirt-style collar, a longer silhouette with button-down pocket at either side and does up with five large black Medusa head embossed buttons. There is a similar button at either pocket and two at either cuff. The skirt is made in a simple above the knee style.
