1960s Courreges Numbered Haute Couture Suit
This very beautiful, perfectly cut, numbered couture suit from Courreges! Courreges spent 11 years as a cutter for Balenciaga before starting his own label and that high standard of tailoring shows in this garment. The fabric is that classic Courreges - it is a good weight and slightly textured and is one shade off of white. That slight texture and absolutely superb seaming are all that is needed to highlight the cut and signature chunky zippers that are on both the jacket and skirt. The skirt is A-line and has two decorative snap embellished pockets just below the waist. The jacket zips and has fantastic seaming on both the front and the back! Extremely collectible and rare and is entirely hand finished! Both the skirt and the jacket have numbered couture labels. Excellent, museum quality condition.
Both pieces are fully lined in a hand set white silky rayon. Both the skirt and jacket close with a front chunky silver metal zipper at the waist. The jacket also has silver snaps on the waist, each cuff and the neck. This barely fit my mannequin so will sit a bit better on the proper sized girl
