Late 1960s Oscar de la Renta Printed Orange & Black Jumpsuit w Extra Wide Side Slit Legs

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 was the first secondary ready-to-wear line for a Seventh Avenue designer.

I have had the twin of this one in the shop before and it is a piece that I was happy to find again. It is from earlier in his career and I love the statement making combination of that classic 1960s orange and yellow color palette with the starkness of the black. The top part of the jumpsuit is cut to skim over the body and waist and has a large pointed, notched collar and short sleeves wide sleeves. The collar and shoulders and sides are all a solid black fabric that has a ribbed chevron texture. The pattern runs down the front and then squares off at an angle to then wrap around the waist. A row of black, decorative buttons runs down the front and I love how the pattern is used to create the illusion of 'cuffs' on each sleeve. The cuffs also line up perfectly with the patterned fabric at the waist. The bottom part of the jumpsuit are extra wide pant legs that have a very unusual construction. Each is made from panels of fabric that wrap over themselves so that depending on how you stand or sit it opens up a high slit that is cut up to past the knee for a flash of skin. Each of the pant legs is a full 54" around at their bottom hem. It is amazing and an instantly recognizable piece of Oscar's work. It appears to have been worn very little if at all.  Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a black silky cotton mix and closes with a hand set, back painted zipper. The buttons at the front are decorative.
