Vintage 60s Leather Jumpsuit Beged Or Israel Couture Size S
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage leather jumpsuit made by Beged Or of Israel, probably during the late 1960s, but possibly during the early 70s. Beged Or had a global reputation as a quality Israeli couture house, with a wealthy clientele that included Jackie Onassis. It was sold in 1981, when competition necessitated mass production, so the high quality that Beged Or produced during the 60s and 70s was abandoned in favour of cheaper production methods.
This leather jumpsuit is quite wonderful, made of quality leather, and with attention to fit and detailing. The piece is sleeveless and has adjustable belt type shoulder straps. It has a matching snap closure belt at the waist. The pant legs are cut wide with a flare down to the ankle. There is a pocket built onto the right chest and to the left derriere. The piece zips up the front and is fully lined with a copper coloured satin acetate fabric.
