Vintage Courreges Blue Ribbed Knit Sweater 1970s Pullover Wool Blend Ladies M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful Courreges Paris brown knit sweater made in a pullover style with V shaped neckline. It has long sleeves and ribbing at the bodice, bottom and cuffs. There is a patterning in the knit (see close-up photo). It comes with its original Courreges plastic storage bag.
Label: Courreges Paris Made in France A. Andre Courreges is a legendary Parisian fashion designer, known for his avant garde “space age” design during the 1960s, and his innovative, “fresh” looking designs through the 70s.
Material: This came from the estate of a wealthy woman who had a tendency to remove labels, so the content label is no longer present. Being Courreges, however, the material is obviously of excellent quality.
Sizing: Size A is indicated, which is a Courreges size code that I don’t have an equivalent for - the lady from whom this came usually wore a size 6-8, so please note the following measurements for fit (your body measurements should be smaller, or measure a similar garment that you own):
Shoulders: 17” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 23” long from the shoulder/sleeve seam with the cuff turned
Sleeve inseam: 16”
Bust: 40” around, unstretched
Bottom: 28” around the ribbed area, unstretched, and 36” fully stretched - best fit would be in between
Length: 23” long, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with the exception of a couple of small pulls, some of which may be original to the knit, really very minor. Otherwise, this sweater looks to have seen little use and was well stored over the years.
This is a wonderful quality sweater - classic and easy to wear!
