Roberto Cavalli Hand-Painted Butterfly Wings Suede Skirt Set
Brand Roberto Cavalli
Early 1970s Robert Cavalli purple suede vest set with matching skirt in a hand-painted butterfly wings motif. This is such a dreamy 70s re-imagination-- in an art nouveau style rendering-- of the delicate iridescence, coloring and radiance of butterfly wings. The print on this is truly magical, people will not only stare, they'll likely study the intricate patterns across both the vest and skirt.
The vest is a boxy, cropped fit. If you wanted to, the vest could easily be adapted into a top, with the addition of a few hook and eye closures along the front, or keep it as is and wear it layered over a sheer top or off-the shoulder blouse.
The skirt has a true, banded waist in a classic a-line cut that hits at just below the knee. Presents beautifully and is definitely impactful when worn together, but also lovely when worn as separates too.
Skirt has a nylon coil center back zipper closure.
