Vintage 40s El Morocco Skirt
54th Street, New York.
Where the stars danced to Gershwin and Porter, dined under white palms, framed by the celebrated zebra-striped banquettes in, perhaps, the most celebrated nightclub in the world.
You might have seen this number on the dance floor, transforming itself from a well-behaved perfect little black skirt to something that could cause a blasé William Powell to put down his martini.
Vintage 40’s El Morocco Slit Skirt (No. 2541). In the perfect silk georgette to give it drape and flow. Low-calf length. Satin lining stops at those four strategically placed slits, two in front and two in back that open incrementally as you move.
Those top pleats, fifteen in all, give the skirt elegance. Leg action gives it attitude.
To say it’s a nice walking skirt would be like saying Picasso is a nice painter.
