Apt 909 2009 S/S L'ecole des arts....1940's bolero + 1940's Japanese morning 3p.c

Circa 1940's bolero cut dress jacket.
Navy sequin'd body + tafta ruffle detail.
Size: small

This piece is a absolutelly + definitely one of the best vintage we've had the pleasure of presenting to you.
Circa 1940's hails from Japan.

In 1968 the Japanese goverment invited western style into the mix importing western cut clothes + textiles.
Of course, they were very expensive + only available to the very rich.
They were called "Youfuku", of course now everybody wears youfuku in Japan + The "Kimono" is few + far between + only worn by the very rich.

This beauty is 3 pieces, deadstock wool in black.
Pants, a jacket + vest. A wildly gorgeous piece. Sexy on girls or boys....
