Here is a marvellous Ben Zuckerman jacket, once paired with a skirt, that dates from the early 1950's. It is a perfect example of the 'New Look' as created by Christian Dior. The shoulders are soft and sloping, so unlike the padded shoulders of the World War II era. The waist nips in dramatically and all in all it is a super feminine yet tailored delight. The buttons are rhinestone and the collar is trimmed in satin. To top it all off there is a matching scarf in satin.
