This vintage Chuck Howard couture dress and jacket set in bright red is a classic designer find. As if the A-line swing dress with pockets and a cute black pleather belt isn't enough, it's got a mod short jacket with a chic nehru collar with asymmetrical button closure. All it needs is knee-high white patent leather boots to complete the look! From the hidden zippers to the heavy, slightly stiff fabric to keep the shape, this is a mod collector's dream.

HISTORY: Chuck Howard worked for Ann Klein and Bill Blass, as well as designing Vogue patterns. A New York Times article about Chuck Howard calls him "one of the adventurous young designers who put a distinctly non-Parisian accent on American clothing in the 1950's and 60's". In the 70s he was back with Ann Klein Studio, designing under the Mark of the Lion label. The article goes on to say: "For a time in the late 1960's, he produced his own line of sporty, colorful coats, tunics, pants and jersey shirts. Doing so, he helped start the career of Donna Karan, who worked for him, and whom he introduced to Anne Klein."

This is a used vintage item, so there are some signs of wear, but it's a solidly constructed couture set and in my opinion the slight discolorations (if not easily removable, which I think they might be) wouldn't be noticed.

The secondary tag is missing so the size and care are unknown, but it's probably a 6R since that is my size and it fits me fine. Waist 31". Skirt falls to just above the knee. To be on the safe side I'd recommend dry cleaning.
