Skort the Issue

Here is a sculpted skortsuit from the late 1960s by Mila Schon. No, that was not a spelling mistake in the first sentence. The adorable shrunken jacket is paired with a skort. Or you could also call them mini culottes. Either way, it is a great, wearable suit in a wool crepe that could take you from Fall to Spring.

Lee Radziwell was a fan of Mila Schon's neat suits and dresses and RARE vintage is a huge fan of Lee Radziwell style. If you have not seen her book Happy Times we definitely suggest it both for its reminiscences and photos. Much of the period that she writes about is the same era as this suit. So, if you like the idea of hanging out with the Agnellis in Italy, Truman Capote in New York and the Kennedys in Washington a little Mila Schon suit just might help you capture a bit of that feeling.

1960s Mila Schon skortsuit. Size 4.
