VESTA SHORTS IN BURNT ORANGE-womenswear-A Child Of The Jago


Regular price £155.00 Sale

Vesta Tilley was a Music Hall Star who wore male clothing for her performances from the age of five years old. She’s quoted as saying “I felt that I could express myself better if I were dressed as a boy.” A meticulous Artiste Vesta rehearsed her acts, perfecting every word and every gesture.

Throughout her luminous career Vesta emulated Dandies and Fops, so immaculately and impeccably that she actually became a fashion icon for men! Vesta made apparent male foibles and exposed male behaviours which made her enormously popular with women too!

This Vesta Tilley Jago suit ensemble is cut with a silhouette for treading the boards and enjoying the lime light! The shorts are flatteringly fitted to the waist and hips, a double button fastening and a zip fly.

Match with the Vesta Jacket and Vesta Trousers in Burnt Orange.

Offered here in a cotton linen in orange houndstooth.

Dry clean only.
