Cutest 1970s Oscar De La Renta Denim Look Cotton Playsuit w Red Braid Trim

The Oscar de La Renta boutique label first appeared in 1967 which makes this one from one of the very earliest collection for this line. His boutique label is important as is marked the first ready-to-wear line for a Seventh Avenue designer to be launched. These early pieces are just stunning examples of his work during these early days of his career. And this one is just so cute

This is just one of those things that you only find in vintage. It is super cute and has a bit of a sexiness to it too. It is all in one playsuit that you just step into and then zip to close at the back. The neckline is scooped and the sleeves are capped. It is cut to skim over the bust and then the waist is seamed but was kept loose and easy. Short shorts are below that and they have that wonderful boy short feel that was so in style during this time period. All of the edges are finished in a flat red braiding and I love the row of decorative buttons that runs down the front. The buttons are covered in the same light cotton mix fabric that the rest of the playsuit is made out of and the fabric is finished to have a denim feel to it. This would look incredible really cinched in with a belt or can be kept more loose and easy and worn without. Excellent condition 

Unlined and closes at the back with a zipper. The buttons are decorative. It appears to have been worn very little if at all.
