Claude Montana Ideal Cuir Early Rare Vintage Lambswool Suede Leather Pants Top

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This deep purple lambswool suede top and pants outfit was designed by Claude Montana for Ideal Cuir in the late 1970's. This ensemble has matching purple leather on the calves, almost like extended knee pads, as well as in large triangles on the shoulders. The neckline has a slight drop from gathering at the shoulders, giving the boxy fitting shirt a little more form. The top has short sleeves, with purple leather panels running to a small slit on top. The high waisted leather pants have a zipper and snap closure in front. This outfit has some fading along the sides that I have tried to show in the photos, you can see it on the close up of the pant leg. Marked as a French size 38, but would fit a modern day size 6. The top is meant to be boxy and would fit a range of sizes. Claude Montana was doing the larger shoulders before the 1980's and this early design is a good example of his progressive design talent.
