1962-1965 Bob Bugnand Densely Sequin Floral Printed SIlk Pant Suit Set
Bob Bugnand opened launched his couture salon in Paris in 1954. His pieces were made to order from sketches and he had the capacity to produce only 50 original pieces a month at most. In 1958 he opened a custom, made-to-order salon in New York allowing clients to buy the Paris designs without having to travel overseas. During the summer of 1960, Bugnand was recognized with membership in the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne and opened his salon at 372 rue St. Honore in Paris. From 1962 - 1965, he collaborated with Sam Friedlander to launch a ready to wear line that stayed true to his couture roots and used high end finishes, giving us the exact window to date this within.
Both pieces of this pant set are made from a brightly printed floral patterned silk that has a solid blue silk trim at the hems and cuffs for contrast. The printed part of the design is completely covered in clear sequins that are hand set to lie flat and side by side across the surface of the fabric. These catch the light with every movement and really gives the design an extra dimension. The top has a simple cut to it and is shaped to follow the lines of the torso. It flares out from the waist to skim over the hips. That same flared shape also finishes the sleeves and the legs of the pants to give the entire set a beautiful balance and a slightly mod feel. The pants are cut with a flat front and sleek lines until they flare out at the hem. I love that you can wear it together as a set, or break the pieces up and pair them individually with other modern pieces from your wardrobe. Excellent condition
Both pieces are fully lined in white silk. The pants close with a side painted metal zipper and the top has a painted metal zipper that runs down the back. It appears to have been worn very little if at all.
