Vintage 1970s Courreges Paris Couture Future Pant Suit Pants & Jacket Size S M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a fabulous 1970s vintage suit consisting of a pair of pants with jacket, part of the Couture Future line by Courreges Paris. Very streamlined, this ensemble definitely has a futuristic look, and can still be considered rather forward looking fashion, even today. The jacket does up with a large tooth vinyl zipper that can be partially zipped up to leave a collar, or all the way up to cover the neck, as shown in the photos. There is a seam on either front side that follows the body silhouette - a pocket is built into the lower part of each seam. The waist cinches with a matching belt and the sleeves are cuffed, each cuff decorated with a button. The pants have a flat panel front and a slight flare to the leg, beautifully tailored.
