Early 1980s Andre Laug Alta Moda Numbered Couture Grey & Orange Sequin Dress

About

The Andre Laug label launched in 1968 in Rome. Laug was one of the grand Italian Couturiers who would now be considered to have designed "Alta Moda" the Italian equivalent of Haute Couture. He apprenticed under Nina Ricci and was the designer behind the first "Mademoiselle Ricci" collection in the summer of 1961. From there he freelanced, working for both Philip Venet and Andre Courreges. His clients included Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy, Diana Ross and countless others.This dress is numbered with one of his couture tags and dates from the late 1970s to the early 1980s. Here we really see the attention to cut and details that his atelier was known for. Woman loved his clothes for their rich fabrics and attention to tailoring, but always with a refined and reserved beauty. This dress is a stunning example of that aesthetic while still taking into account the impact of using neon brights and sports related looks that was heavily influencing fashion during this time period. The entire dress is hand covered in a sequins. The sleeveless bodice uses clear sequins that allow the soft dove grey of the silk used for the bodice to show through. On the skirt the sequins are finished in an almost neon orange backed by a matching orange silk bodice. The waist is set low and dropped. This is then further detailed by a heavy embellishment of beads and more sequins, this time set on their sides so they have a more 3D feel to them. The neckline is scooped at the front with a wide silk border finished in a slightly different shade of grey. The waist has just a suggestion of shape and the skirt falls to the floor from there. The color in the skirt especially is exceptional - it is far brighter and crisper then how it photoed and really phenomenal in person. Excellent condition. Fully lined with a hand set fine white silk chiffon. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. Hand finished interior seams throughout to couture standards. Beautifully constructed. Couture numbered tag present.
