This wonderful Ben Zuckerman suit dates from the early to mid 1960's. It is made of a very substantial (and expensive!) wool in a pale pink. The jacket is single breasted with pockets at the waist. The buttons are exquisite- almost like jewellery.
The skirt is a slight A-line and is a very classic style that would not look out of place today. This suit is not couture but isn't far off, there is a real attention to detail and the workmanship is top notch.
This beautiful suit was sold at Martha's, Palm Beach, New York, Miami Beach. Martha's was a very high end boutique that sold only the finest clothing, including many French designers such as Dior. I
