1960s Navy Silk & Silver Metallic Oscar de la Renta Dress

About

This Oscar De la Renta gown is just waiting for the perfect party and I am thrilled to have it in the shop. The construction is beautiful on this one with a really sculpted defined shape and that incredible silver metallic design worked directly into the fabric. I love the oversized plaid pattern, when done in a silver lurex thread woven into the deep blue silk base it seems to take on a fresh new light and different perspective. The gown is a dream of construction with internal details like tulle set in and around the hip to gently hold the shape there and a wide band of dressmakers tape hidden inside the hem so that when it falls it has a touch of weight and fullness. The collar and front are done in wide panels of deep blue silk that anchor the gown and keep the silver from being overwhelming. Oscar being Oscar the still added some extra glimmer with huge glass crystal buttons running down the front. I love the shape and cut - it is classic hostess gown and very glamorous with a full skirt that flows to the floor and is perhaps a touch fuller then how it photoed. A fabulous and early Oscar design that is even better in person. Excellent condition Fully lined in a navy muslin, including the sleeves, and closes with a painted metal zipper and hook & eye at the back neck. Hand finishes. Tulle inserts at the hip. Heavy horsehair band inside wide hem It is even more lime and gold in person. The buttons are decorative with each buttonhole properly finished underneath.

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.
