Exceedingly rare and highly sought after vintage late 1970s earl 1980s pedal pushers, these were recently sourced from a collection of pieces from an estate in France.  The and are in near perfect condition, all the more to behold to the trained eye of a seasoned vintage collector.  Albeit an unsigned vintage piece the quality and tailoring are excellent and they appear to have been crafted as a couture made to measure piece.

Cut from black and gold zig gold lurex, this style of pants emanated from capri bicycle pants of the 1950s to have a renaissance again in the late 1970s in the disco styling creations of Studio 54 and continued to the early new romantic styling of the 1980s.  Y ves Saint L aurent took influence with his matador suit. These pieces of fashion history are becoming scarce to source and this pair are in exceptional condition and are almost timeless in their uniqueness equally.

The pants fasten with 3 filigree design gold brass buttons and a zip and gave a wide waistband to emphasise that high waist look.  The pants  are lined part way for modesty through and the lurex gives way to a voluminous fun silhouette that tie to the knee to create that bubble hem on each leg

Style with a black velvet jacked for chic sophisticated styling or pair with our blue lurex bow blouse as shown here.
