Inspiration From Guy Laroche - 1960

For Fall, 1960, Guy Laroche showed this trĂ©s elegant suit in orange and gray wool.  The dress is made to look like two pieces.  The jacket is reversible from orange with gray binding to solid gray.  The dress is fitted to the body while the jacket is the boxier shape that was so popular at the time.  Note the use of a brown leather hat and brown suede gloves to complete the look.

How does this inspire you?

How beautiful! The whole ensemble is so utterly chic. It makes me want to fast forward through the rest of Summer and get to Fall already.

I would wear that suit today. (Well, maybe not today, but when the weather cools off.) LOVE the colors and the design.

This inspires me to look for a one piece dress that appears to be two pieces. A perfect fit as it glides over the model's body makes a truly beautiful design and execution in gorgeous fabric!

Love it! I'm a big fan of suit-ish type ensembles so this is perfect. Also love the burnt orange against the gray--will have to mix that into my fall wardrobe.

I am inspired by the color combinations and of course, the hat paired with the gloves. Beautiful!

Ooh. Those colors! I've never thought of orange and grey together.

I also love those pieced bands around the waist of the dress. Lovely.

I really love the leather hat. It really tops (haha) off this outfit. Just perfect. I am starting to wear more hats, and this inspires me to really try out hats of different materials and see what looks good together.

Thanks for sharing this!

This color combo is marvelous...so autumnal and chic. I'm inspired to play around more with my autumn grays (I wear gray A LOT) and see what new combos I can come up with! Thanks! Kay

I'm so glad you all liked this suit! Gray is a great color and will mix with any other color, just the way black or white do. It's a fantastic neutral to have in your closet.

Gorgeous ensemble and again the hat and gloves really finish the look.
