1977 Oscar de la Renta Colorful Jersey Print Halter Backless Resort Maxi Dress

About

Gorgeous Oscar de la Renta graphic print jersey dress dating back to his 1977 collection. Oscar de la Renta is one of the world's leading fashion designers. Trained by Cristóbal Balenciaga and Antonio Castillo, he became internationally known in the 1960's as one of the couturiers to dress Jacqueline Kennedy. This breathtaking early creation from Oscar De La Renta is not only rare but shockingly timeless. The fabric is a "light as a feather" print silk-jersey blend so wearing the garment feels like wearing air. I adore the low-cut plunge halter bodice with dramatic backless design. A seductive high slit inches up the front to meet a flattering sash-tie nipped waist. This designer beauty is an wonderful style for any modern event. Measurements Bust:Variable with no true side seams Waist:25-27 inches Hips:up to 40 inches Total Length:58 inches This Oscar de la Renta dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Closes with front hook/eye and sash. This garment is over 40 years old and is truly beautiful.

About Oscar De La Renta (Designer)

    Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stdibs in a 2010 profile.

    And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

    A perennial favorite on 1stdibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
