Early Calvin Klein

Just in - An incredible vintage early 1970's pants suit by noted American designer Calvin Klein. This is the earliest label from this company and the only garment I've ever had with this label in my years of dealing in vintage clothing.

Calvin Klein started his business in 1968 with a line of coats. He expanded into sportswear in 1970, and judging from the style, this pantsuit would have been from one of his first sportswear lines, probably dating from 1970 - 71. This suit consists of a long maxi vest with matching hip hugger pants. The construction is of the highest quality, as you would expect from a high end garment. It was originally sold by Vogue Gowns in Millburn, NJ.

Available now in our EBay store. And just one of several designer items we've added recently, including 60's Cardin, 70's Hanae Mori, 50's Anne Fogarty, and 50's Irene.
