Description

Three-piece women's suit featuring a fitted blazer, wide slacks with front seams, and a contrasting vest. The suit is worn with a patterned scarf that is tied around the head. This illustration was presumably created for a Bonwit Teller advertisement based on the store's stamp on the front. However, the inscription on the back labels it as a newspaper ad for Saks Fifth Avenue, so the true use of this illustration is unknown.
