This product is unavailable
This is a striking 80s era suit by Parisian designer Thierry Mugler. This type of fitted suit became synonymous with the Mugler brand during the 1980s, and this is a very nice example. The suit consists of a jacket and skirt, both made of plaid wool. The jacket is trimmed in black cotton velvet at the opening, faux pocket flaps and cuffs, each accented with a large silver toned metal buckle. The jacket has padded shoulders, and closes with four velvet button covered snaps. The jacket is quite structured and has a longer length - the lapels can be worn flat or raised to the front (see photos). It is lined in black acetate. The skirt is made in a simple, above the knee length.
