1960s Orange Signature Jacquard Silk Balloon Sleeve Blouse
This rare Valentino Boutique blouse dates to the late 1960s. Made in Italy of orange "Valentino"-signature jacquard silk, it features balloon sleeves and 7 square gold metal buttons doing up the front and two on each cuff. There is a line down the back where the silk seems to have been stressed at some point. It is only visible under very close inspection and the piece remains structurally sound (please see the last photo). There is also some patina to the buttons and very minor discoloration in the armpits. Overall, the blouse remains in very good condition. It has been professionally dry-cleaned and ready to wear.
