Luxe meets rustic in this vintage 1970s skirt suit from Oscar de la Renta fashioned of whipstitched, butter-soft cognac leather.
Styled like a shirt, the jacket has a band collar, front onseam pockets, and high (6.5”) side vents, It closes with six marbled plastic buttons.
The gently flared skirt--the perfect partner to riding boots—closes with a side nylon zipper and has 2 slant hip pockets. Both jacket and skirt are lined with logo printed rayon satin.
Both pieces are labelled “Oscar de la Renta” along with fabric content (100% leather shell, 100% rayon lining) and country of origin (“Made in Spain”) tags.
The skirt is tagged a (vintage) size 8, but please consult the measurements below as the suit is quite small.
Exact measurements are: Jacket bust 32”, shoulders 15”, sleeves 22”, waist 33”, and length (measured from center back base of the collar to hem) 22.5”; skirt waist 25”, hips 32”, and length 29”.
Very good condition, with minor scuffs and creases to the supple leather which do not detract from its rich patina or the suit’s overall presentation.
