The Suzy Perette label was a registered trademark of Lombardy Dress (founded as Lombardy Frocks in 1930) and turning out a clothing line as early as 1946. A sister label to Suzy Perette was the Gigi Young Fashions label (late fifties to 1966). This label followed the same successful style formula of Suzy Perette but as a less expensive line.Suzy Perette was greatly influenced by Parisian fashions, with the silhouette of cinched waist and full skirt extremely popular during the early fifties. In fact, the Suzy Perette label acquired the right to incorporate Christian Dior's designs into their own product range. The label on this suit indicates that it is a very early design, but nevertheless has the wonderful styling and attention to detail that is a hallmark of this label.
Highly desirable suit for two reasons. The first is that it is a rare early Suzy Perette and the second is that it has a fabulous 1940s silhouette, particularly love the waterfall back peplum. This suit is in really good condition for its age, no notable flaws that I can see. Tiniest bit of colour variation in the fabric but not noticeable, just mentioned for accuracy. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
