Gorgeous metallic merlot-red silk Lilli Ann suit dating back to their 1954 collection. Lilli Ann was started in San Francisco in 1933 by Adolph Schuman, naming his company for his wife, Lillian. The company became known for their beautiful, elaborately designed suits and coats. This stunning two-piece is fashioned in a luxurious medium weight metallic burgundy red woven silk that seems to have an almost 3-dimensional feel but without being stiff or heavy. The construction is impeccable and has the type of seamed pattern work that one rarely sees today. The jacket has an amazing tightly pleated collar with the same intricate detail flowing the lower waist. I love those lean, long cuffed sleeves. The high-waisted pencil skirt finishes the suit with a perfect femme fatale vibe.
