1970s Oscar de la Renta Bright Pink Front Cut Out Halter Dress

About

I have had a similar dress to this one in a darker color combination and slightly different neckline but I think that I love the vibrant pink of this one a bit more. It is a stunning design and an early example of De La Renta's work. The colors on the soft jersey are as crisp and true as they would have been when it was produced. I love how they absolutely pop against each other. The dress is cut halter style with a front that appears crossed but is really just cleverly sewn and placed to create the effect. It has a sexy cut out at the midriff that shows off an expanse of skin. It crosses and circles the neck and this allows the back to be left completely bare to the waist. The skirt is draped in a lean column to the floor. It is an insanely sexy dress that still manages to maintain its sense of classiness and doe snot cross over into feeling tacky - mainly because of that bright and happy print. The fabric is a silk jersey that is easy to wear and travel with. Excellent over all condition with one items to note below Unlined and ties at the neck. Closes with a low back painted metal zipper and snaps at the waist band. Hand finished. I see a small area of a nick to the fabric near the side seam towards the front. I photoed it for you to see. It is very minor and seems stable. Otherwise perfect. Note the color is brighter and a truer pink then how it photoed. Bust: variable with no true side seams Waist: 12.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: open Bodice: approx 15" from shoulder to waist Length: 40" from waist to hem Modern Sizing equivalent: XS-SML This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.

About Oscar De La Renta (Manufacturer)

    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.
