In excellent used condition.
The balancing act between restraint and swagger is a quintessential aspect of CoSTUME NATIONAL. This rare pullover is a good example of the label's aesthetic. Its design channels the A/W 1996 collection's 1970s-inspired atmosphere, and combines sportswear elements with the label's signature sharp tailoring. The result is a balanced but directional garment that sits somewhere between formal and casual.
A striking Western collar defines the piece, accompanied by an elongated three-button opening with a reinforced triangular base. The torso is constructed with a short yoke panel and waist pockets with large welts. The hem has a shirt-like curve, and the sleeves have workwear-inspired two-button cuffs. The fabric is thick blue velvet consisting of 70% cotton & 30% modal. Typically used for evening wear, it has a smooth texture and deep colour. The interior is fully lined in viscose satin.
