1960s Oscar de la Renta Metallic Dot Dress with Green Sash

About

This is the second time I have had this dress and I love it just as much the second time around. It is a beautiful full length dress by Oscar De La Renta in his classic hostess gown silhouette. It is constructed from a beautiful silk brocade whose color is a deep raspberry pink that has a purple undertone to it. The base fabric has a simple matte finish that then has a metallic thread in the same color woven through it to create the designs on the dress that you see. The metallic thread catches the light beautifully and the dots and curved peaks that run over the dress from top to bottom add a stunning visual interest. The sleeves are slightly full and caught up in a defined cuff in at each wrist. A simple scooped collar tops the simple bodice. From there the waist nips in and you can add more shape with the brilliant green metallic fabric belt whose fabric has been done on the opposite way of the dress - the base is metallic and the dots are matte. Below the waist the skirt billows out and flows to the ground in a beautiful cascade of fabric. Excellent condition Fully lined in a purple silk and closes at the back with a hand set, painted zipper. Each sleeve closes with two hidden, fabric covered snaps. The belt is in excellent condition. Note that though the waist and bust are fuller it is cut smaller through the shoulder. Shoulders: 14.5" Sleeves: 23" Bust: to 20" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: to 16" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: open Bodice: 15.5" from neck to waist Skirt: 39" from waist to hem Modern Sizing equivalent: MED-LRG 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.
