Description

Illustration for a Saks Fifth Avenue advertisement featuring a women's suit (possibly by Chanel) with a pencil skirt and blouse with an oversized bow collar that hangs over a double-breasted jacket with decorative trim. Lines on the jacket and skirt suggest that the material may be tweed. The ensemble is paired with a small hat and gloves that extend past the wrists.
