1960's Early Emanuel Ungaro Vintage Beaded Black Crepe Dress


An absolutely divine vintage shift dress from the late 1960's by genius vintage designer, Emanuel Ungaro. This is one of his very first designs for his boutique line, Paralléle Paris and is a rare design from early in his career. Ungaro's father was a master tailor and this is really shown in his work. With a keen eye for tailoring, he was first hired at Balenciaga then went on to design for Courréges. The influence he gained from working at Courréges, is really reflected in his early designs, and is exemplified in this dress. With its clean lines, incredible tailoring and daring neckline - this dress was both following and pushing fashion in the 1960's and would still be today. The futuristic look is created by the minimalist shift silhouette and luxurious crepe fabric, but with a twist - the neckline is plunging and embellished with glitzy sequins, making this the perfect little black dress for any evening event or cocktail party. Estimated Size: UK 10/ US 6/ EU 38. Please check measurements to ensure best fit. Bust - 34” / 86cm Waist - 30” / 76cm Hips - 38” / 96cm Length (Shoulder to Hem) - 36” / 91cm - Full hand-set lining - Sequinned Neckline
