About

Amazing, quirky little 1980s skirt suit by Pierre Balmain. This set consists of a gorgeous and beautifully haute couture made black linen jacket with matching double layer black and yellow striped pencil skirt. The peplum jacket features the same yellow stripe in the side panels, black PVC collar and cuffs and fastens with three buttons down the front. There are belt loops for probably what was a matching PVC belt; however, this is no longer with the ensemble. The skirt has two side pockets and fastens at the back with a zip, both pieces are in excellent condition.
