1960s Sable Trim Brocade Oscar de la Renta Gown

About

Amazing, rare and important silk metallic brocade gown by Oscar de la Renta is perfection. The fabric is shockingly light - at first glance you would think it is a heavy weight stiff brocade but it is actually quite light. It is of a good enough to retain the shape but easy to wear. Very regal and refined this really sums up Oscar's love of opulent restraint. It covers you from top to bottom with a simple neckline, simple bodice and long lean skirt - the simplicity of the cut allows that stunning fabric to shine. The skirt is a subtle A-line from the waist and I love the hidden pockets that are along the side seams of the skirt. The original belt is present so you can cinch in the waist as required to add a nice nipped waist and feminine touch. The neckline has elastic running through it so you can wear the sleeves off shoulder and the sable trim is the last perfect finish. The fabric is amazing - gold threads mix with chocolates and a deep red coral creating whose different finish threads create different textures and weaves so you get a subtle 3D effect and the raised bits become another dimension to the design. It's an amazing piece. Excellent, museum quality condition. Fully lined in a light taupe silk and closes at the back with a painted metal zipper. The original belt is present in excellent condition. Shoulders: no defined seams Bust: 17" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 12.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: to 22" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 13" from shoulder to waist Skirt: 39" from waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free.

About Oscar De La Renta (Designer)

    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.
