Couture Wool suit, black and white checkered, by designer Paul Gaultier with great provenance. Nice quality suit lined and with shoulder pads as all good jackets and coats were in the 1980's. Lovely, soft wool fabric. Vintage but like new condition. Perfect condition.
The Jacket is cut in the waist with a belt tied to the back. The skirt has this cute pleating of fabric in the back. It has 80's shoulder pads. Shape and stylish in the black plaid or checkered wool.
This is a wool suit, skirt and jacket that is a perfect model size 6 U.S. Hard to believe that Paul Gaultier, known for his outlandish clothes and shows, also had a sophisticated, more moderate side, as well. What you see in his fashion shows is not what you found in the stores, especially in the early 1980s.
This garment is part of a gifted collection, after a museum showing of the designers work. Dates and particulars will be given with purchase order, to protect the names of the "gifted".
Because it was part of a collection and common with touring designers collections, there is no label. They are cut so pieces won't be taken off and sold.
Gaultier went "out there" in the late 1980's and made clothes for people like Madonna's famous pointed bra, and also designed skirts for men, in plaids as well. But he did make more "user friendly" clothes for everyday people like you and me. This suit is one of them. Great style and design and perhaps worn in a fashion show from his earlier designs, but I do know it was part of a museum display. The story of how I received it will come with purchase.
