1970s Chic Cream Courreges Pant & Jacket Suit
Andre Courreges began his career at Balenciaga and when he did suits you can see the influence of that strict tailoring mixed with the mod and easy style of street wear at the time. The way he used wools to mimic the synthetic fabrics being used at the time is pure genius and very cutting edge for the time. This two piece pant and jacket set is in a beautiful chic cream. The pants are are cut straight and tailored with a crisp knife pleat down the center of each pant leg. I love the jacket - it has that perfect seventies vibe to it with a double row of buttons to close down the front and pockets high on each side. The back is equally fabulous with a row of buttons running down each side of the back seam and a checked pattern created by top stitching. It is of course great as a suit but you have that extra versatility of being able to break it up and wear them separately as well. Excellent condition.
The pants are fully lined in a cream nylon jersey and close with a painted metal zipper and flat hook and eye at the waist. The jacket is lined in a cream silky rayon and buttons to close. each cuff buttons to close. Both pieces are tagged a Courreges 00. There is a "invisible" repair on one leg - please see photo. It was acquired with this already done and it is very well done.
