Androgynous Tweed Suit, 1980s
PLEASE NOTE: This item is reserved, please do not purchase.
A rare and exquisite vintage men's/ unisex suit from the 1985 A/W collection by legendary vintage designer and David Bowie's personal favourite, Kansai Yamamoto. Made in Japan, this incredible suit is from a limited release of only 69 of this design. The jacket is oversized with an edgy, wide shouldered design and made of layers of houndstooth and herringbone wool tweed fabrics with a brown velvet collar. Perfectly blending Western and Japanese fashion is what Kansai was known for and this suit exemplifies this! The pants are in a matching herringbone with an avant garde high waist and balloon shaped legs that tighten at the cuffs.
Estimated Size: Pants fits roughly like a modern men's XS to Small but with an oversized jacket, would also fit a women's Small. Please Check All measurements to ensure fit.
