1970s Louis Feraud Haute Couture Silk Embellished Dress

About the Item

During the 1960s, Norwegian fashion designer Per Spook joined French fashion house Louis Féraud. He went on to become Louis Féraud’s artistic director and designed the brand’s lauded haute couture collections until 1977. Known for his cerebral tailoring and subtly whimsical detailing, this haute couture gown highlights both. Of complex construction, this longer, floaty midi dress is cut from delicate silk chiffon in pale nude with a contrasting navy skirt with a gathered waist. With a key-hole neckline topped with a single silk bead, the bodice is detailed with geometric patterns in navy and cobalt beads, recalling art deco motifs. The long-sleeves are slightly sheer and have balloon-shape tailoring. The cuffs are finished with matching beading and are fastened with two hidden, silk-covered poppers. A hidden, tonal zip secures the rear of this decadent gown with a second, navy zip which secures the skirt below. The bodice is beautifully lined in a darker nude chiffon whilst the skirt has a navy silk charmeuse lining. It is presented in near excellent vintage condition overall; the dress is unlabelled. We noted very, very faint halo marks under the arms, right inside the crease, and a few scattered and very small marks along the side seam on the left side. Nothing that would be noticed when worn. The bead work is immaculate and the dress does not appear to have been altered. It is a truly stunning and wearable addition to any elegant haute couture collection. From the collection of a chic, Parisian socialite who had an extensive haute couture wardrobe and best suited for up to a UK size 10 or US 6. MEASUREMENTS Bust - 36 in. (91.5 cm) Waist - 29 in.

  • 1950s Diana Warren White Tulle Dress With Ribbon Appliqué
    By Diana Warren
    Located in London, GB
    A beautiful and timeless original 1950s pure white tulle ribbon appliqué work dress from high-end British boutique label Diana Warren. Classic scoop neck, cap sleeves, a fitted bodice and pleating to the waist, the dress is adorned all over in scrolling ribbon appliqué work over a net overlay. The underskirt lining is a lightweight acetate with a net mid layer. The dress fastens at the back with a metal zip and is styled in the photos without a petticoat. The fullness of the skirt will allow a petticoat of several layers if desired to further accentuate the waist and hips. Truly excellent vintage condition - we have been unable to find a single hole in the lace and all the ribbon is intact. This would be a beautiful vintage bridal dress...
