c1966 Courreges Haute Couture Mod Cream Dress

About

This very beautiful and perfectly cut couture dress from Courreges. Courreges spent 11 years as a cutter for Balenciaga before starting his own label and that high standard of tailoring shows in his garments. The fabric on this dress is exactly what you look for in a classic Courreges - it is a good weight wool that holds the intended shape, slightly textured and done in his signature cream color. That slight texture and absolutely superb seaming are all that is needed to highlight the cut of this fabulous little dress. The skirt falls in an A-line and the waist simply skims past the torso. The shoulders are cut high and slightly inset. A beautiful curved seam meets the center seam that runs down the center. and this is repeated at the back with a small strap that is set at the lower back and buttons into place. The sleeves are set ling and slim but do pouf slightly above the buttoned cuffs. Extremely collectible and rare with the Courreges couture label in place. It is entirely made by hand and a stunning example of his work during this time period. Excellent, museum quality condition. Fully lined in a hand set cream silk. It closes with a back, fine, painted metal zipper and the detailing at the lower back buttons on with proper finished buttonholes. It buttons to close on each cuff. Perhaps a touch more of a true cream in person. I see two pinhead size storage marks on the inside of one sleeve and the slightest of marks on the front and back skirt that I cannot capture on film. I only see it in very specific lights so it is very faint but there. I have priced the dress accordingly and this would be in the 3's if this was not there. It's honestly not something that deters at all when on so this is an exceptional price for couture piece of this era. Sleeves: 21" Slightly inset shoulders: 14" Bust: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 15.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 18.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 33" from neck 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.
