70s Vintage Top & Skirt Set by Andre Courreges in Bright Yellow Cotton Blend
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage designer Andre Courreges two piece ensemble from the 1970s consisting of a top and skirt in a solid bright yellow color, which is very in right now. The top is made in a short sleeved style with an elasticized waist. It has a notched neckline and does up the front with three snaps and two sets of ties. The skirt is made in a knee length. There may have been a Courreges logo applied to the waistband that is no longer there - there is an area that appears to have had something there previously, however, this is covered by the top in any case, unless you tuck the top in, and even then the area is not noticeable. There is a pocket built into either side of the skirt. The skirt does up with a metal zipper at the back.Label: Courreges Paris Modele Depose Made in France.
