When we first came across this Pierre d'Alby blazer, we weren't quite sure where it came from. We hadn't heard of the label before, but we loved the styling and knew we had to have it. After doing some research, we found the following information on Pierre d'Alby via the Vintage Fashion Guild website:
The label Pierre d’Alby was one of the first players in France to become part of the explosive 1960s scene. The label was created by Zyga Pianko in 1958 and a very young Daniel Hetcher was hired to design the first six collections. Other well known designers such as Agnès B, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Feycal Amor, and Nicole Fahri designed for the label. In the 1990s the company changed its name to Zyga, in honour of its creator.

This particular blazer is in a great navy color with gold contrast piping. Judging from the styling and label, it is from the late 1960s or early 1970s.
The style is classic and timeless, as you can see J.Crew is selling a very similar design in their Fall '10 collection.
