Documented Vintage Oscar de la Renta 1982 Red Silk Beaded Caftan Maxi Dress

About

Incredible and rare vintage documented OSCAR DE LA RENTA (for SAKS 5th Avenue) red silk caftan from the iconic 1982 collection! There was a whole section of caftans from this collection in the ODLR exhibit at the De Young Museum! Words cannot even begin to describe how utterly beautiful this gem is! Kerry Pieri, Fashion Director at Harper's Bazar, listed this same exact caftan as the one thing in her closet that she will never get rid of in April 2016 (see photo). Heavy duty silk, with hand-sewn beads on the collar, and a beaded tassel with pearls. Wide angel sleeves, with a slit at each wrist. Looks amazing on! Can easily go from day to night, and looks great belted or alone (pictured Yves Saint Laurent YSL belt from the Russian Collection is also available in my 1stDibs Shop). In great condition. Made in USA. Approximately Size Small - Large (can fit an array of sizes due to the nature of a kaftan) Measurements: 38-40 inch bust Up to 38 inch waist Up to 42 inch hips 57 inches from top shoulder to hem

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.
