1968 Norman Norell Couture Nautical Sailor Bow Novelty White Linen Belted Dress

About

This iconic 1968 Norman Norell nautical sailor dress in mid-weight linen exemplifies his signature blend of couture level quality with quintessentially American style-elegant in its simplicity. The bodice has an adorable detachable red-bow and sailor flap-collar. I love the hourglass belted waistline. Complete with side-pockets and beautiful pearl-covered buttons. As pointed out in the book "Couture: The Great Designers", Norell had a profound influence on the ready-to-wear industry and on younger American designers by insisting that off-the-rack clothing be as fine as made-to-order. The masterful design and superb quality of this garment more than meets his exacting standards. Measurements Bust:37-38 inches Waist:34 inches Hips:40 inches Total Length:49 inches This Norman Norell garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Designer marking on matching belt. It is fully lined in white china-silk with no missing buttons. This documented dress is over 40 years old and is truly stunning.
