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 documented ensemble from 1952 is fashioned in a rich fully-lined medium weight wool. The fabric itself is a masterpiece- ivory flecked wool 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 amazing tightly pleated bell-sleeves with large sparkling rhinestone buckles. I love the hourglass nipped-peplum design. The high-waisted cocktail wiggle-skirt finishes the suit with a perfect "femme fatale" vibe!

This Lilli-Ann designer suit is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working side metal-zipper. Lots of wonderful detail; hand finishes and immaculate seaming. A few missing little rhinestones from the buckles which is not noticeable when worn. This ensemble is over 50 years old and is truly stunning.
