About

Jean patou pieces are not a label you see often and I love when I do find them. The house had some pretty big names pass through after Mr Patou's death in 1936 including Karl Lagerfeld (which I believe this is) and Christian Lacroix. This beautifully draped dress has a real goddess feel to it and stunning lines. The silk jersey fabric is so easy and instantly drapes perfectly on the body. The skirt flares out from the banded and angled waist with a surprising amount of fabric used to construct it so that you get lots of movement. It is supermodel length long and flows to the floor in a cascade of jersey. The waist nips in for a little definition with that gorgeous banding. The front is gathered in all along the upper edge of the waist band and the entire bodice isl draped with sleeves that cut from the waist. Those sleeves are fantastic wide and completely dramatic! A nice V neckline gives the dress the perfect balance. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips on the wear with an partial inner waist stay and has a side handset, painted metal zipper.
