1980s Oscar De La Renta Jewelled Metallic Printed Silk Jacket & Skirt Set

This gorgeous set from Oscar de la Renta has a wonderful high glamour feel to it because of the jewels and gold cording accents. It is made up of two separate pieces. An open jacket and midi length skirt. Having the separate pieces makes it very versatile since you can mix and match them with other pieces in your existing wardrobe. The print use for the silk of both pieces has an intricate designed worked over it and this pattern has been done in a mix of rich jewel tones. The silk used for the set also has a ribbon effect so that parts of the silk have a different finishes and catch the light differently. The silk is light in weight but still structured enough to retain the shape he intended. The skirt is banded at the waist with the fabric set into the waist in a series of soft knife pleats. These then open up and allow for the volume that you see. It is cut loose and easy through the hips and then widens out slightly as it near the hem. The hem is finished with an intricate edging of black velvet, gold cording and paste jewels that are set into the designs that the cording forms. This gives the hem some structure and catches the light fantastically. The matching jacket has a simple cut and slips on to wear with no front closures. It has the same highly detailed embellishment that follows the front edge, curves around the neckline and runs around the entire hem of the jacket. Each sleeve is also finished at the cuff with this same gold, velvet and jewelled detailing and is inset into the shoulder so that they have a slight puffed effect. It is fabulous and looks like it has never been worn or worn very little. Excellent condition

Both pieces are lined in a black silk. The skirt closes with a series of snaps and flat hook & eye at the waist. The jacket has no closures and has padding in each shoulder. Tagged a vintage OLDR 8. Very well made and it looks to have never been worn or worn very little
