1980s Koos van den Akker Floral Plaid Ensemble

Koos van den Akker


Fun and vibrant 1980's three piece halter top, skirt and crop jacket with cummerbund ensemble by recently deceased and unique designer Koos van den Akker who worked for Christian Dior before traveling to his native home in Hague, Netherlands and then back to New York City with a sewing machine and $180 going on to establish stores in the Big Apple and Beverly Hills. He was also the designer of the famed Bill Cosby Sweaters. With an attention to detail and a background in window displays. Van den Akker knew and used this talent in combination with his love for historic folk costumes. He could play play on folk concepts as inspiration for couture like no other. In this ensemble Van den Akker used a collage of floral, plaid and polka-dot prints for this work of art. Extremely well designed and executed, the stand alone Halter top has a zippered and button back closure, while the skirt has a flirty almost mock elastic waistband. The crop jacket has no closure. Can be worn as an ensemble or pieces to be paired with numerous other items in your closet. A truly unique creation and a beautiful example of his work!
