There are laces on the side with can be used a multiple ways. A gauze mesh style fabric with a slip gold semi pink champagne silk style silhouette on the top and back. Most of the collection included this illusion design aspect.
Overall this is a incredible collectors piece! SIZE: The tag on the label states 42.Most gaultier pieces are made in Italy so it would a Italian 42 or European 42. Unfortunately half of the label was removed during dry cleaning and is now missing. I do have a photo when the full label was attached.
PIT 2 PIT: About 15 Inches. BACK WIDTH: Around 13-14 Inches.
The garment was measured on a flat surface with the laces halfway laced up. Since this piece is about 24 years old there are some signs of wear. There are some light marks that can be found throughout the garment. The right sleeve hem is what I consider the most flawed part as there is a sized light faint mark.
Ive had this piece dry cleaned but unfortunately due to the fabric being light and complicated the removal of the mark wasnt so successful although it has faded much more! There are very light creases on the satin portion hardly noticeable. There are also about two small snags one on the back near the neckline and one near the hem. I also noticed that there are light marks on the beige colored laces but not heavily noticeable.Also as written in the size section the composition tag and paris tag have detached due to heavy dry cleaning and I no longer can locate them. Fortunately the Jean Paul Gaultier tag with the size it still attached! Overall the piece still has a great amount of life left!
