1980s Givenchy Shetland Wool Numbered Sweater w Bead & Sequin Detailing

This is a gorgeous Givenchy Shetland wool sweater done in a ivory and soft taupe. The cut is oversized and cozy and feels like a glitzed up version of the perfect outdoor sweater. It is the kind of piece that will never go out of style. It feels both comfortable amd luxurious when worn. The neckline is scooped with an interesting little half collar set on the front and back and then it meets and crosses over itself slightly at the sides. The sleeves come out of the sides of the sweater and are start out extra wide and then taper in as they reach the ribbed cuffs. I love how the pattern helps to define the cut of the sweater. Set into this pattern are hand placed appliques that combine big paste stones, sequins and beads. This gives the sweater a bit of high glamour and sparkle. The result is pure high end luxury. Excellent overall condition with one small items to note below.

Unlined and slips over the head to wear. The bead and sequin details are hand sewn and placed. Numbered on the tag. The fabric does have stretch so should fit a range of sizes. There is a spot on the back of one sleeve that may come out further with another round of additional cleaning.
