1970s Oscar De La Renta Silk & Vivid Metallic Strapless Dress

About

This is a stunning strapless silk and metallic dress by Oscar De La Renta. The floral pattern that runs over the black silk chiffon is so vibrant and beautiful. My photos do not begin to do the colors justice. These are bright metallic lame thread that is woven through the fabric from top to toe and the flowers seem to jump off the fabric. Oscar kept the silhouette simple and chic to balance that color and the dress has a simple strapless, fitted bodice that tops a long skirt that gathers up in a pretty curves at the front. The fabric of the skirt wraps around itself at the front and is cut on a curve on both sides. Both layers of the black chiffon lining are cut in the same way so that when you walk you get a flash of leg at the front. The chiffon is lightweight and that fabric choice allows the skirt to have lovely movement around you as you move. The top is fitted and the fabric gathered and ruched over the bust and then gathered into the back zipper. Really a lovely dress Excellent condition. Fully lined in a black silk chiffon, with two layers in the skirt. Closes with a back painted nylon zipper. Note that the bodice has lost one of the boning at one side. It stays in place easily if it fits just right. Bust: 16.5-17" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 14.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: to 21" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 10.5" from top of dress to waist seam Skirt: 42" from waist seam to back hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.

About Oscar De La Renta (Manufacturer)

    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.
