Beauty:Beast - Size: 40-42"/32" - Grey - Cotton Single Breasted Suit With Thread Surface Embellishment

£220.00

Product description

Beauty:Beast - Size: 40-42"/32" - Grey - Cotton Single Breasted Suit With Thread Surface Embellishment

This Japanese fashion brand was founded in 1990 by the designer and master of the industry Takao Yamashita. The first collection was presented in 1991 along with the rise of the urban culture in the famous district of Harajuku, which catapulted it to its stardom; Currently, it is considered as a cult brand in the Japanese country. It is quite a rare item to appear for sale, so this is a great opportunity to grab a much sought after label.
The suit is made of cotton, with Cupro piping to the jacket interior, and Cupro lining to the trousers. The grey fabric has been decorated with a diagonal line pattern made up of black threads, which create a wavy line all over the trousers and jacket. The threads have pulled loose in quite a few places, not really suprising given that they are sewn on in long stitches, making them quite easy to catch. However the damage is not particularly noticeable, and it would certainly be worth your time having it repaired if you wish to, given it's rarity. The jacket fastens with a single large button and has a notched lapel. There is a narrow breast pocket set quite high on the left breast, as well as welted, flapped hip pockets. The sleeve cuffs are each trimmed with a single button. It is unlined, but has piping to the seams, and has a single vent. The matching trousers are straight legged with a pleat to the front, and the stitching pattern runs vertically. They have slash pocket on the hips, and welted rear pockets which fasten with an internal button and loop. There are belt loops to the waistband, with the loops at the rear of the waist forming an x design. The trousers are fully lined in Cupro - and the lining is not for the faint hearted! The fabric print is rather cheeky, being made up of the type of posters you might see in a phone-box, though a little censored. it's certainly very different!
