Vintage 1970's Stephen Burrows Pale-Pink Layered Chiffon Wrap Blouse Pantsuit

About the Item

Incredibly gorgeous and rare Stephen Burrows pale pink chiffon pantsuit dating back to the mid 1970's. Burrows was one of the first African American fashion designers to achieve international recognition for his work. He was also one of the five American designers to show at the iconic Versailles battle in 1973 when the Americans went up against the French couturiers. He even won three Coty awards; in 1973, 1974 and 1977. This set is a fantastic testament to Stephen Burrow’s effortless ease and use of movement. The chic low-plunge blouse features a wrap around style and layered design to show depth. Many of his garments, including this one, had their hems finished with a complex zig zag edging. This became known as his signature 'lettuce' finish. The pants have an elasticized waist for perfect fit and a tiered layer hem to match the sleeves. “I consider Burrows the only original American designer since Claire McCardell,” Karl Lagerfeld, fashion’s most opinionated man, once said, “Why? Because he created his own rules about cut. It was sophisticated, original, and unorthodox.” Measurements (varies due to style) Jacket Blouse Bust: 34-36 inches Waist: 26-30 inches Sleeve Length: 23 inches Total Length: 30 inches Matching Pants Waist: 26-30 inches Total Length: 43 inches This Stephen Burrows designer ensemble is in beautiful condition with no rips, stains or alternations. Only sign of wear is one small hole that only goes through one layer of chiffon. Please message for detailed pictures. A rare wearable piece of fashion history.

  • Vintage 1967 Courreges Couture Yellow White Checkered Wool Belted Jacket & Skirt
    By André Courrèges
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    A totally iconic and absolutely stunning Andre Courreges Paris ensemble dating back to his 1967 couture collection. Andre Courreges launched his Space-Age look in 1964. The shapes of his clothes were geometric: squares, trapezoids, triangles. The main features of his ultra-modern, uncluttered look spread quickly throughout the fashion world, especially the miniskirt, which he introduced to France. This archival yellow and ivory-white checkered wool two-piece is a fantastic example of his vision. The fitted jacket has a flirty low-cut plunge and bold waist belt. My favorite part is the over-sized breast pockets which is a signature Courreges touch. The high waisted a-line mod skirt is a statement piece in it's own right; definitely flattering the figure. "The woman who interests me doesn't belong to any particular physical type. She lives a certain life, however. She is active, moves fast, works, is usually young and modern enough to wear modern, intelligent clothes." Andre Courreges Measurements Jacket Bust: 36-37 inches Waist: up to 31 inches (belt used to make as small as desired) Sleeve Length: 21.5 inches Total Length: 22 inches Skirt Waist: 29 inches Hips: 40 inches Total Length: 23 inches This epic first-edition Courreges numbered couture checkered skirt...

    By Nina Ricci
    Located in Beverly Hills, CA
    Stunning and very rare documented Nina Ricci haute couture jumpsuit dating back to her 1967 Fall-Winter collection. The French fashion house, known for its feminine, ladylike clothing, has long been the go-to for Parisian chic. To achieve Nina Ricci figure-flattering cuts, the seasoned dressmaker draped on a live mannequin, pinning and snipping with a couturier's care. This breathtaking tailored jumpsuit dress is a perfect example of this brand's genius. The bodice has lean 3/4-length sleeves with a gorgeous mock turtleneck and hourglass nipped waist. I adore the hidden side pockets and sculpted middle front pleat skirting. Such a unique yet timeless design.
