1980s Galanos Grey Wool Check Skirt and Coat Ensemble

$1,225 Asking Price


Fabulous heavy wool skirt suit by Galanos! The knee length skirt has a loose A - line silhouette with fabulous long fringes at the hem. The jacket has a loose and boxy fit, with straight and structured shoulders, a mandarin collar with wing tips, long sleeves with fringe detail, and three oversized square buttons down the front for closure. The back of the jacket features a belt - like detail that adds visual interest by pulling the weight of the jacket down, giving it a more streamlined look. James Galanos spent the early years of his fashion career under the tutelage of Hattie Carnegie, costume designer Jean Louis, and Parisian couturier Robert Piguet. His experiences with these master designers informed his luxurious-but-not-ostentations designs. Throughout his entire career, Galanos did not once expand his brand, eschewing a mass-market paycheck. Among his clientele were Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich, Rosalind Russell, Diana Ross, and Nancy Reagan. Exclusive and opulent, Galanos is known for making the finest, most elegant garments. Skirt Measurement: Waist: 32" Hip: 42" Length: 33"
