1970's Jean Louis Scherrer Brown Velvet Skirt Suit With Tapestry Style Jacket


The French master of classic 'restrained' design, Jean-Louis Scherrer, creates a 1970's velvet suit with a nod to the Victorian era. The lush textured jacket buttons up the front with a ruffled stand-up collar, modified mutton sleeves and buttoned ruffled cuffs. The fabric has a tapestry style design incorporating images of crowns, florals and coats-of-arms accented with lions and griffins all in shades of brown, olive green and blue. The coordinating brown velvet skirt hooks and zips at the back with pleating at the waistband to provide soft volume. Currently, the skirt is a below the knee length which would be perfect for Victorian inspired 'granny' boots or lace up riding boots. Both pieces are lined and beautifully made. CONDITION The jacket in in excellent condition although the original belt is missing in action. The rather inconspicuous belt loops are on the side and can easily be removed, if desired. The skirt is in good condition though there are some subtle impressions to the velvet as noted in photographs 11 and 12. It appears as if a snap may have been added and then removed at the back of the waistband as shown in photograph 12. SIZING & MEASUREMENTS Both pieces are marked a French size 36 and best fit a modern size 4. For visual reference, the mannequin in the photographs is a size 4.
