This stunning suit by Pauline Trigere was featured in a full page ad for the Martha luxury boutiques in 1983. It looks like the sawtooth trim on the jacket is likely black suede and I imagine it adorns wool crepe in a jewel tone, likely red, emerald or cobalt blue. The suit is paired with a black fox fur hat and stole and black gloves. This look was the height of American high fashion at the time.
