Numbered 1970s Andre Courreges Deep Blue Velvet Zip Jacket & Wide Legged Pant Set
This is a remarkable example of Courreges and the work that Andre was doing during this time period. I know we often associate his work with very mod and short pieces but he also did these fantastic pant sets and he did them so very well. I am sometimes more excited to find these more unusual pieces from him then the more classic ones associated with his name. I have had versions of these in the past and I just love whenever a set comes into the shop. This one is a little extra special because it is a numbered set.
Andre Courreges pushed the envelope when it came to design and even amongst the many pieces of Courreges I have seen this is a stand out. The design and use of zippers and seaming to create interest on this set is fantastic. Both pieces are made from a deep blue cotton velvet with a flat pile. This helps the pieces to hold their shape while still feeling great on. The color is stunning. It is a deep dark blue that is super flattering on most skin tones. The pants are fantastic. They have a smooth flat front with a zipper closure. They skim over the hips and then the legs are wide and full. They are fabulously made and fully lined. I love the jacket. It has that perfect seventies vibe to it with his signature chunky silver zipper and silver toned metal buttons. A tie runs through the waist so you can cinch it in to add shape or leave it loose and wear it more boxy. The way it closes is so unusual. The zipper is set at the top part of the bust and then it snaps to close under that to the hem. Having the two pieces gives you have that extra versatility of being able to break the set up and wear them separately or together. It appears to have never been worn or worn very little. Excellent condition.
Both pieces are fully lined in a blue silk. The pants close with a front zipper and snap & hooks at the waist. The jacket zipper and snaps to close with a drawstring waist. Both pieces are tagged a Courreges 00 and are numbered
