No stitching on the jacket, kimono sleeves with only two side seams. Painted tag on the bodice. Blouse in cream shading to rust. Wide trousers with integrated sliding belt. Perfect color and condition. Dimensions: Jacket: Shoulders, 41 cm, size 100 cm, sleeves 30 cm. Trousers: length 110 cm and height 90 cm. Back height 95 cm, front height 61 cm, top in size 36. Scarf 181 cm x 25 cm. Ian met Marcel in Canada in 1976. They created the label in London in the 1980s. Their inspiration is clearly medieval but also refers to the pleats of Mariano Fortuny to which Ian had unlimited admiration. Very innovative, their specialty was painting on silk with rubber, the pleats are an obvious reference to their master, Mariano Fortuny. The Victoria and Albert Museum devoted a cataloged exhibition to them in London in 1993 after their death from AIDS.
