Pants? Vintage Pierre Cardin Top? Thrifted Shoes? Jeffrey Campbell Woodies (old, search Ebay?)
These vintage Pierre Cardin pants have been in my shop since the day it opened. I'm not shocked, they come in a set with a head scarf and a quilted jacket and as a suit, the whole thing is a little intimidating. I do love to separate a set to give it new life but I was a bit hesitant to do that with the designer tag. Also, the pleating and quilting in the same suit is pretty clever and I can respect the workmanship enough to keep them together.
And so they hung on the rack for months while the high waisted denim shorts flew out the door (seriously, the key to making the rent are denim shorts... a lesson learned in vintage life, more on that in a later post...). I was about to pack the suit up for a re-merchandise in the future sometime and then... I tried on the pants.
Predictably, I fell in love and I wore them the very next day.
No one is surprised right? I guess I just got myself a new suit.
