1980s black and white patent leather suit | Wolff of Canada | medium
This striking 1980s black and white colour blocked patent leather jacket and skirt set features a short white leather skirt with black piping along the side seams and a white leather blazer with contrasting black front insert and two-tone notched collar.
The jacket is a classic 2-button semi-fitted silhouette with a back pleat, 2 front pockets with flaps and 3 buttons on each cuff. The skirt is short, darted around the waist and closes with a centre back zipper. It’s meant to be worn snugly over your hips.
Both the skirt and jacket are lined.
Condition is used; it was worn. And as with any leather there is some stretching, dimpling etc of the leather over the years. The skirt has marks along the waist from the clip hanger which removed some of the white colour and scratched the leather a wee bit. On the back bottom of the jacket, the glue on the seam has come off exposing about a 1/8 to 1/4" of raw hide that is uncoloured. You could get it professionally glued by a leather person or shoe maker, or colour it in with something yourself. I created 2 collages to show you the condition. It is a fabulous colour blocked patent leather set and if you don't mind a few minor issues you will love it! Please see the photos at the end for details and please ask me any questions you may have or if you need more photos, I'm happy to send.
