Fantastic 1970s Hanae Mori Bright Floral Print Jersey Pant & Top Set w Signed Belt
Hanae was the first woman of Japanese descent to have presented on the Paris and New York runways and the first Asian woman to be admitted as an official Haute Couture house to La Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Her work is exceptional. This set is an amazing example of how she could design for a younger audience and still keep tp her aesthetic.
I am a huge Hanae Mori fan. A jersey pant suit is perhaps not what you first think of when you think of her work but once you see it you realize that it shows how broad her range was. The set is made up of pants, the tunic, and a matching belt. The fabric is a wash and wear jersey that holds that gorgeous bright print perfectly and it is a dream to travel with. These jerseys would have been used to make garments to appeal to her younger jet set clients. That amazing print covers the entire surface of the jersey fabric. I love the bold pops of colour worked throughout. She was just a master at colour and print. The pants have a flat waist, skim over the hips and then the legs are cut wide and full. By the time they reach the bottom hem they are a full 34" around. The top is cut with with the perfect seventies line and has a high collar and long straight sleeves. The belt is done in a solid red jersey and has her name printed on both ends so when you tie it you see it. It cinches around the tunic and adds shape at the waist and finishes the look. If you choose not to wear the belt then the tunic has a more loose and easy feel. The jersey is a wash and wear and virtually wrinkle free so it is incredibly easy to wear and travel with. You can wear all the pieces together for a strong statement or break up the set and wear them as separates with other pieces in your closet for lots of styling options. It looks to have been worn very little itf at all. Excellent condition
