The Icon: John Galliano's Houndstooth Check Hourglass Suit

Early John Galliano is a particular favorite of RARE vintage.  His collections really epitomize the dream and fantasy that fashion has to offer. We are always looking for early pieces by him as well as pieces from his short design period at Givenchy.  So, if any of our RARE vintage blog readers are interested in parting with their pre 1997 John Galliano or Givenchy pieces please give us a call at 212 581-7273.

This glamorous, sculpted suit looks as good now as it did in 1995.  Patricia Arquette wore it to the premier of her film 'Beyond Rangoon'.  It is a 1940s-silhouette but cut close to the body. The jacket is curved at the waist and padded at the hips.  There is a small slash in the sleeve which has a couture level detail of being outlined in white leather.  The  fit is unbelievable and emphasizes a woman's body.  (It looks much better on the body then on our mannequin by the way.)
