Vintage Jacques Fath Fitted Silk Evening Coat Dress With Lace Overlay


One look at this incredible creation from Jacques Fath illustrates why he is considered one of the most influential haute couturiers during the period following the end of World War II (sharing this distinction with Christian Dior and Pierre Balmain). 100% silk shell exquisitely mimics seersucker on arms and body bordered by large swaths of ivory. Voluminous collar looks good down and even better in the "turned up" position. Flared long sleeves complement wasp waist and full skirt perfectly. Desire Couture Embellishment? Black lace overlay on sleeves, front, hem and back are worthy of any museum installation celebrating the height of Haute Couture! 19 Covered Buttons and 2 Snaps secure this work of art! Made in France.
