1970s Oscar de la Renta Chiffon Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This chiffon gown from Oscar de la Renta for Saks Fifth Avenue is a stunning shade of ultramarine, with shimmering aqua polka dots scattered across it like light dappled on water. Elegant Greek-goddess draping is paired with the fun polka dot pattern to create an unexpected and playful design. The attached scarf can be draped around the body creating a myriad of designs. The fabric moves beautifully, bringing to mind the mist of a waterfall or a running stream. There is some slight discoloration which we have photographed. The silk organza lining to the bodice is shattered in a few places, however this does not impair the ability of this dress to be worn as it is constructed from several layers of fabric. Lightweight chiffon and bright, jewel-like colours make this a perfect summer gown. A great early dress from this iconic American designer.
