c1983 Hubert de Givenchy Haute Couture Velvet Dress w Silk Bow


I am so pleased to see velvet pieces having their place on modern runways again. It really is a beautiful fabric and feels fresh and new once again. This exceptional Haute Couture dress from Givenchy is wonderful. The dress is beautifully cut and is that perfect mix of sensuality and proper that Hubert de Givenchy excelled at. It is numbered and would have been designed while he was still the head of the house. The dress has a dramatic neckline that drapes and scoops at both the front and the back. In order for it to actually stay on the shoulder there are very structured padding at each shoulder and loops for your foundation garments to clip through and anchor it into place. The inner bodice also has a second silk structure that is more fitted to the body. The fabric chose feels like it has a life on its own and it catches the light beautifully. At the waist sits a detachable bow and sash that cinches and gives shape. I have put the bow to the front but it works equally as well to the back. . This is done in a beautiful heavy silk and is the perfect contrast to the velvet. This is Haute Couture under the masterful hand of Mr Givenchy himself and is an exceptional example of his work during this time period. Excellent condition. Fully lined in handset, very high quality brown silk. All couture construction and it closes with a hand set, fine metal zipper at the side. The sash detaches and closes with hook and eye. Inner waist stay, padding in each shoulder.
