Sleeveless Slim Look dress (from the name of the 1961 collection) in black wool jersey and black satin gazar, waves superimposed from the bust to high waist. Shiny matte effect for this minimalist dress representing French chic. Thanks to Coco Chanel, the little black cocktail dress becomes a classic of purity.

Lining in silk muslin very slightly damaged otherwise excellent condition of color and conservation. In 1961, thanks to his first autumn-winter fall collection nicknamed Slim Look, he announced the era of a woman dressed without shackle. "The silhouette is supple, thin, the shoulders are natural, the waist undulates, the hips are very flat, the skirts flare gently in a lively movement and stop just after the birth of the knee", details the press release from this collection. The last picture shows Mr. Bohan with a similar dress. Dimensions: Equivalent French Size 38 Front height 102 cm Back height 100 cm Shoulders 35 cm Collar 16 cm Chest 93 cm Waist 70 cm Hips 97 cm
