Striking four piece ensemble from famed artist Mara Abboud dates to the 1980's and is made of black suede with gold leather accents. Halter-style top gathers softly at neckline and ties at the back waist. Over-sized coat has exaggerated padded shoulders, gold leather trim down the center front opening, and hand-painted leaf appliques. Wide belt has matching leaf appliques and ties at the center back. Ankle-length skirt has elasticized waistband and no closures. All pieces are unlined. Please note that this piece is not signed; however, it is Mara Abboud because I bought two identical ensembles (this one and a purple one) from the same owner and the purple ensemble is signed.
No size label.
