About

Fantastic heavy silk, long, shirt-waister dress with grey toned horizontal stripes by Oscar de la Renta. This vintage late 1960s pret-a-porter design was an early label for the designer after he branched out on his own having designed for the upscale fashion houses of Elizabeth Arden and Jane Derby. The dress is beautifully made with poppers and hooks and eyes to fasten at the front. It has a very luxurious feel to it and the inside is fully lined in a grey silk lining. In excellent condition - there are original belt loops at the side, which could easily be removed, but no belt remains. No size label but would best fit a size US 4, UK 8.

This store label reveals that the dress was retailed by the the Hart-Albin Company of Montana, who sold exclusive labels through their department store which existed from 1902 through until 1991.

About Oscar de la Renta

    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.
