Guy Laroche '70S Tweed Coat and Skirt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The Guy Laroche Diffusion ready-to-wear line was launched in 1974. This gray tweed outfit, dating to that time period, is comprised of a double-breasted, A-line coat and matching wrap skirt. The close-fitting coat has the high armholes characteristic of the period and features wide lapels, diagonal flap pockets and two vents in the back. The slightly A skirt has a deep overlap and closes with an inner hook and two snaps. Both pieces with full hand sewn lining. Beautiful tailoring and fit.

Coat marked size 40, skirt size 10, but remember these are vintage sizes; it is more like a current 4-6. Skirt waist is 26", hips 34.
