1960s Beni Salvadori Jewelled Couture Tunic or Mini Dress


The Salvadori label is not a common one and little is known about his work overall. He was one of those amazing small couture houses based out of Paris that was doing amazing work but seems to have only lasted for a short time before disappearing into the annals of fashion history. This little found treasure from that label is just wonderful and if this is what his work looked like I wish I could find a roomful of it. This little sleeveless tunic is just long enough for a brave girl to pull it off as a micro mini if she dares. It is just delicious and has so many fabulous vintage details and made to a high level of demi-couture workmanship and technique. The straps that curve up and around the shoulders are wide and adorned with hand placed rhinestones and bright jewels. These adorn the square cut neck in a wide panel that is carried to both the front and back. It curves in slightly at the waist and then flares out to create a sculpted little skirt. I love the strong top set pockets on each hip that have more jewels and rhinestones. The fabric itself is a thick corded and ribbed cotton that holds the intended shape perfectly. Excellent condition. Fully lined in a white silk and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The white is crisp and fresh. I see one missing green stone at the back (see photo) otherwise no other missing stones or rhinestones. Primarily hand finished. Bust: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 15" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 28" from true neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
