1980s Matador Black Velvet Pant Suit
This black velvet 1980’s Escada suit is deeply matador inspired, with layers of black embroidery embellishing the open style jacket on its low sitting pointed lapels, around the bottom hem, on both shoulders and on the sleeve cuffs, which feature three small black buttons on either side, but are in fact sewn closed. The high waisted pants are hemmed with silk satin around the top of the waist, and the silk satin hem extends around the seamed pockets and down the outer hem of the pants. On each side of the pockets is a twisted tassel, adding a touch of drama to the matador inspiration. The boot leg pants are closed with two outer and one inner black button, and a front zipper. The jacket is lined with black silk, with a textured “ESCADA” pattern. This is my personal favourite Escada item I’ve listed, it being a hard to find and dramatic style.
