Patou Couture & Lacroix Couture

Amazingly a Jean Patou, Paris numbered couture quilted satin jacket from the 1960's is a near perfect match for a Christian Lacroix numbered couture satin skirt from the 1990's.

The jacket is designed in a classic early 1960's style. Karl Lagerfeld was designing at Patou at this time. It is collarless and without closures, waist length, the only ornamentation the round satin buttons on the sleeves. The body of the jacket is beautifully quilted in a diamond pattern, the sleeves are not quilted. The jacket is lined in cream colored silk and bears the numbered couture label at the center back.

It is in very good but not perfect condition, there are a few very faint spots on the back of the sleeves, between the elbow and the wrist.

Ironically, Christian Lacroix worked at Patou before opening his own Couture and Ready-to-Wear business in 1987. This skirt is designed in the wrap style and it has a wide waistband with snaps and hooks for closures. The skirt is gently gathered and there are three deep gathers at the center front. The hemline is shorter at the front for added interest. The skirt is fully lined in cream satin with the numbered couture label at the center back. It is in pristine condition.
