1970s Givenchy Haute Couture Metallic Dot, Silk & Mink Dress
This Givenchy Haute Couture dress is as chic and wearable now as it was when first made. It is entirely finished by hand and would have been made under the direct supervision of Hubert de Givenchy himself. Haute Couture is the very pinnacle of the fashion experience and this is a wonderful example of his work. The dress is a stunning affair made of a brown silk chiffon that has dots covering its surface. Each dot is made form a metallic lame thread woven through the silk and these vary in color from gold, to silver to copper. This gives the dress a beautiful glow in the light as you move. The construction details are wonderful. The bodice has been pleated by hand to create a series of vertical pleats that run down the center of the dress at the front and the back. On the sides of the dress the fabric is left unpleated and this small detail adds tremendous texture to the dress. The shape is loose and easy so it can be worn by almost any body type. You could also add a belt to change the shape if you wished. It falls to the hem in a column of light silk. The sleeves are soft and full above their buttoned cuffs and the collar is accented with a squared off mink fur collar. No shortcut was taken in the construction and it is a stand out piece. Proper Haute Couture label and numbered tape. Excellent condition. The dress is lined in a hand set brown silk with the sleeves unlined. It closes on the interior silk lining with a hidden hand set, painted metal zipper that is hidden under the edge of the pleats at the back. The sleeves button to close. Finished to Haute Couture standards and entirely done by hand.
