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.
