This Numbered Haute Couture suit from Pierre Balmain and designed by Oscar de la Renta is so wearable. It is unlined and made from double faced wool.

There are two roomy pockets and the couture label is in the left sleeve seam. Two small shoulder pads are attached with snaps and can be removed easily. The narrow pants are also labelled and sequentially numbered in the couture manner. The fabric is a light weight wool herringbone weave and they are fully lined in silk. They have a flat front with two pockets and a left side zipper. Both pieces are in excellent condition. There is no size tag in true couture so please check the measurements below.

About the Designer

Oscar De La Renta

Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stDibs in a 2010 profile.

And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

A perennial favorite on 1stDibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
