An extraordinary suit tailored by Malcolm Hall in the 1980's.
Malcolm was an assistant designer and pattern maker for Ossie Clark and Alice Pollock 1968 to 1970 before launching his own label and becoming a mainstay of the glam roack and pop scene through the early 1970's. His designs were worn by Paul McCartney, Abba, The Rolling Stones and he even has a suit designed for Jimmy Page in the V&A museum. Take a look at our post about him Glam Style
We've been lucky enough to get hold of all his sample suits from the 1970's to 1990's. These would have been made for clients to choose the designs which Malcolm would then tailor to thier specifications. All fully finished and largely unworn. What an amazing find.
This Black silk suit is a typical 1970's glam creation with the jacket styled with the same wave as the white Malcolm Hall jackets worn by the guys in ABBA.
The suits is quite an androgynous fit and therfore would fit mens and womens sizes. Chest is 34" so is a small mens. Around a 10/12 for womens.
Waist 33", Inside leg 31", Hips 35", Chest 34"
Originally styled as a mans suit, we think our model, Grace__Space, looks ready to step right into Studio 54!
Malcolm himself has said he's happy to consider adjustments or commissions. Call us for more details 01423 709941.
