1960s James Galanos Cut Out Neck Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


The construction on this dress is to couture levels and quite innovative as well. All the upper seaming is absolute genius and really showcases Galanos gift for tailoring and cut. Made of a fine wool that is a lovely shade of brown almost a milk chocolate color that will be flattering on most skin tones. The dress is cut in a simple straight sheath with sleeves cut on the long side so that you get a soft billowing effect once on. The upper bodice is really where the perfection lies - the seams are cut on angles up the the center neck at the front and back. At the front a portion of these are left open so you get a glimpse of skin through them. At the back are two similar slits and along the slanted seams along where the arm attaches, the zipper is cleverly hidden. The original belt allows the wearer to cinch in the waist to add shape. Excellent condition.

Unlined but with fine ribbon edged finished interior seams. It has a hidden set painted metal zipper and buttons on each cuff. The belt is original and has the Galanos stamp. Hidden pockets on each hip. Hand finishes. More of a milk chocolate color in person
