1970's Philippe Venet Haute Couture Orange Textured Silk Draped Caftan Dress



A gorgeous and vibrant Philippe Venet haute couture orange silk caftan dress dating back to the early 1970's. Venet famously worked as an assistant to Elsa Schiaparelli from 1951 to 1953, and then worked beside Hubert de Givenchy at his couture house’s atelier through 1962, when Venet launched his own couture house. As Olivier Gabet, director of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris once said, “As Monsieur Hubert de Givenchy’s lifelong companion, he helped to build the house into an international force in fashion, and his many contributions remain an essential part of our DNA,” This beautiful dress is a fantastic example of his talent. The garment is fashioned from high-quality textured silk in the most stunning bright orange hue. I adore the unique bow-trimmed shoulders and optional sash which can be used as a belt, hairband or neck scarf. The sleeveless draped cape caftan design draws attention to the bodice while skimming the hips effortlessly. Almost like a mock-vest. We added many pictures so one can understand this special piece. This is that versatile day to night dress every fashionista looks for. Measurements Bust: 39-40 inches Waist: 36 inches Hips: 44 inches Total Length: 50 inches This Philippe Venet haute couture designer garment is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working back original zipper in place. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
