M 1980s Givenchy Couture Olive Green Wool Button Back Dress

About

Understated and versatile olive green wool dress by Hubert de Givenchy. The dress hits at the knees, is long sleeved, and has a tight jewel neckline. The dress features two button closure flap pockets at the bust, a wide waist - cinching belt with rounded square buckle, and a wide stitch accented hem. The back of the dress features five large round buttons running down the center for closure. Givenchy is known best for his elegant and innovative haute couture. He began his career working under Elsa Schiaparelli, Jacques Fath, Robert Piguet, and Lucien Lelong. As a young man, he worked alongside Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior who were also making their mark on Parisian fashion. Givenchy designed Audrey Hepburn’s iconic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” dress, popularizing the modern “little black dress”. He also designed much of Hepburn’s personal wardrobe. Givenchy was always reinventing himself and with that, revolutionizing the state of fashion. He is credited for creating the “baby doll” dress and “balloon coat,” two designs emblematic of the 1960s. Clients include Ingrid Bergman, Maria Callas, Nona Hendryx, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Empress Farah Pahlavi, Comtesse Jacqueline de Ribes, Baroness Pauline de Rothschild, and Diana Vreeland.
