Late 1970s Oscar de la Renta Layered Silk Pant Set

Sold to The Met Museum!

What an amazing and versatile set by Oscar de la Renta! Made from pure jewel tones that you can layer and wear as you please this set is just visually stunning. The silk is light and high grade and holds the colors beautifully. They are as crisp and true now as when this was first made. The pants are just perfection - they have an elastic waist for ease of wearing and then are cut loose and easy through the hips and then narrow slightly as they near the hem. It comes with two tunics that layer over the pants (or can be worn without and as a dress if you are brave enough). Each tunic is cut to skim the torso and has deep slits along each side so that each color of the ensemble can be seen. The inner green tunic is a simple tank style and the outer bright red tunic has wide, easy sleeves and a notched neck. The matching cord and tassel belt ties in all the colours for the perfect finish - you could also wear it as a neck piece and leave everything else loose and easy. It a fabulous set and having four pieces makes it so versatile! Excellent, appears unworn condition

All the pieces are unlined. The pants have an elastic waist and the tunics slip on.
