1960s Courreges HyperBole Twirling Skirt Sleeveless Dress

About

This wonderful black wool crepe Courreges dress can be worn on its own or styled in the manner of his signature look, with a top or turtleneck underneath. It is made from a light black wool crepe that moves well and is not heavy when on. It is cut sleeveless with wide straps and a square cut neckline. The bodice is meant to be fitted and a row of decorative, thick black buttons runs down the front. Each has a properly finished buttonhole behind it despite the fact that the buttons are not functional - the kind of detail that shows the quality of his work and attention to details. It is seamed at the waist and then the skirt stays fairly fitted to skim over the hips. As it nears the hem the skirt opens up to a startling fullness - it is a full true circle skirt near the hem. This gives the bottom of the skirt soft rounded curves and then if you twirl or move you soon discover the tremendous movement that this technique gives the skirt. The dress has really beautiful seaming and an impeccably construction. It is always hard to convey black in a photo but when you see it in person I think you will be very pleased. Excellent condition. Tagged a Courreges size 00. Fully lined in a black silky rayon and it closes with a hidden set side zipper. The front buttons are decorative only but has properly finished buttonholes.
