Vintage 1980s Bernard Perris Size:S black & white polka dot evening suit

£325.00

Product description

Exotic evening skirt & jacket from Bernard Perris, the French couturier who designed for Guy Laroche, Dior, Jacques Heim & other great Parisian fashion houses. He is known for his dramatic clothes worn by the stars in films & on the red carpet. This two-piece consists of a short jacket & long mermaid skirt in black figured (probably) silk with large white polka dots. The jacket has a small collar & fastens with 4 buttons at the front. It has a tight fit over the bust & midriff & is cut short of the waist. The bat-wing sleeves are long with padded cuffs trimmed with 2 buttons. The jacket is fully lined.
The skirt has a 1" wide waistband & fastens at the back with a hidden zip. It has a pencil fit with only a slight flare to the hemline. The fishtail is inserted from about knee-level & hangs below the hemline. The skirt is fully lined. It is unlikely you will see another ensemble like this so if you like to make a dramatic entrance, this is the one for you!
Actual measurements: Jacket: Bust 36" length front 15" back 17"
Skirt: Waist 26"(see note below) length 43"
[Please note the following. 1. A cuff button is broken but there is a spare inside.
2. The waist of the skirt has been taken in about 2"--could
be easily let out.
3. The label is grubby & the lining of the fishtail is frayed.]
