1940’s Suzy Perette emerald brocade suit
very rare 1940's early Suzy Perette 2 piece jacket & skirt dress suit
Suzy Perette was not a real person but actually a registered trademark of Lombardy Dress that was first used in 1946 and became a registered trademark of Lombardy Frocks in 1954.
The company was started by the Blauner family and some of the designers included Evelyn Dawson, George Halley, and Victor Costa.
In the midst of the the “new look” era during the early fifties, for a sum of about $2,000 (plus royalties) Sidney Blauner acquired the right to incorporate Dior’s notions into dresses thereby enabling the Suzy Perette label to bring Parisienne fashions to the United States at an affordable price. The quality of fabrics and craftsmanship of Suzy Perette designs from this era beautifully reflect the couture style qualities from which they were inspired by.
- dramatic forties silhouette with strong shoulders, nipped waist, and slim skirt
- decadent emerald green brocade compliments her oriental flair
- as do her classic frog closures and mandarin style collar
- the double peplum elevates her dramatic, yet composed style
- she has hidden snaps for a clean and secure closing
- cuffed sleeves
- metal zipper on her straight skirt

very good with light signs of wear. subtle fade on shoulders and sleeves that is not easily noticeable due to the nature of the fabric and it's slightly iridescent quality. some wear to the last frog closure. original shoulder pads are missing and the ones used for display are not included. price significantly adjusted accordingly.
