That is what you see and feel when you view this flawless, lovely suit from that purveyor of world-renown taste, style and sophistication; I. Magnin. Very gently worn, this pristine Vintage 1980's-era suit features a yoke of Pearls, both large and small, and gleaming golden studs, 'dusted" across its softly rounded padded shoulders. The Black Crepe material is fashioned beautifully as a double-breasted jacket with a two button waist accent which camouflages the clever snap closure. The beautiful Straight Skirt, with its back-split, perfectly complements the exaggerated lines of the jacket. I call this suit 'Dressy' because its glitz does not have to be limited to the evening, but should be enjoyed whenever you feel, or 'need' to feel like a 'Star'. Its label "I. Magnin" has lately risen again, making this piece, an original, all the more valuable and special! The purchase of this incomparable garment will include a clear acetate front-zippered garment bag. ---- In 1876, Mary Ann Magnin and her husband Isaac Magnin opened a San Francisco shop selling lotions and high-end clothing for infants and later expanded into bridal wear. The newest Paris fashions were imported for her very exclusive clientele. Her 4 sons followed in her footsteps with John, Grover and Sam joining her at I. Magnin; named after her husband, while her son Joseph was well known as the owner of his own Joseph Magnin store. Rebuilding after the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, the chain opened 6 shops in top-tier hotels in California, and the flagship store at 50 Grant Avenue at Geary Boulevard in 1912. The Wilshire Boulevard store in Los Angeles, which opened in 1939 and the new Union Square store which opened later in 1948, were known for their elegant, striking architecture. When designer Christian Dior visited from Paris, he toured the Union Square store, known as the "White Marble Palace", and said "Magnifique!" This exclamation became the high compliment: "Magninique! 1944 brought the sale to Bullock's, and a 1964 proxy battle merged Bullocks-I. Magnin with Federated stores, although they were run as separate divisions. R.H Macy & Company fought a losing battle with the Campeau Corporation in 1988 to takeover Federated, and the final settlement allowed Macy's purchase rights to Bullock's, Bullock's Wilshire and I. Magnin. 1992 brought the bankruptcy of Macy's, and the shuttering of 13 stores, and converting the others with time, to Macy's stores. In 2006 Macy's resurrected the I. Magnin name and again uses it as a house brand label on ladies apparel. But it simply cannot compare to the style, workmanship or e'lan your original!
