1969-1973 JG Couture for Malcolm Starr Metallic Organza Detailed Jumpsuit

The J.G. Couture was added as a division of Malcolm Starr in 1969 and was produced until 1973 so we know the window from when this jumpsuit would be from.

The jumpsuit is gorgeous and when combined with the gold metallic threads that run from top to bottom and create those little gold dots, it is made even better. The exterior layer is an organza that has a secondary print running over it and under the gold dots. I love the richness of the earthy tones mixed with the gold. The gold is further set off by the braiding that runs down the front, around the waist and highlight each arm where the sleeves are set in. The braiding also circles each cuff. As you get closer you realize that there are flat gold metal discs set in and running along all of the braiding. Each is engraved with a circular pattern to pick up the dots in the fabric even more. There are also little gold dome details and rhinestones. The sleeves are long and slim and the neck is simple and scooped. The pants are very full and flares out in a gentle swoop of fabric as they falls to the floor. At first glance it looks like full length dress but they are indeed pants. It is a beautiful and dramatic piece. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a hand set taupe silk rayon. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each leg is a full 54" around the bottom hem. Hand finished throughout and there is a good 2.5" turned up under the hem of each leg if you meed more length
