1960s Metallic Oscar De La Renta Dress

About

This is a fantastic and beautiful early 1960s dress by Oscar De La Renta with the early boutique label! It is beautifully light ans supple but with a cut that allows it to retain its pretty shape. I know that at first glance it appears to be a heavy brocade, but the fabric is actually a light weight silk brocade, through which gold and copper colored thread has been worked, so that the entire piece glows. The design on the fabric is glorious with pops of a vivid metallic green off-setting the metallic. Depending on how the light hits it glows green or the gold/copper mix! The collar is simple and the bodice cut to skim the body. The skirt is amazing - a wide A-line with hidden side pockets. Current Oscar De La Renta pieces can fetch many thousands so buying a vintage piece is a excellent alternative and a smart investment move as well. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a black silk with hand finishes. Closes with a back, hidden set painted metal zipper. Gold braid accents at the collar and cuffs.
