Very striking 1960s Rudy Gernreich for Harmon Knitwear top and culottes set. The top features long, red knit sleeves, red knit stomach panels, and a crew neck, as well as purple and olive wool panels creating the illusion of a layered crop top halterneck over a red long sleeve shirt. The wool blend culottes feature a fun and funky pattern that is not quite zigzag, not quite zebra, and not quite hounds tooth but is definitely vibrant! The colors play off of each other, and in unison create an eye-popping ensemble that is the perfect example of the avante garde, innovate, adventurous designs Rudi Gernreich was known for.
