F/W 1995 Christian Lacroix Stunning Metallic Gold & Copper Lace Dress

About

This Christian Lacroix dress perfectly showcases his mastery in combining colors, fabric and textures. Every element on the gown has a depth and texture to it separate from the others and yet it all works perfectly together. A version of this dress, using the same metallic lace for its skirt, was shown on the Fall 1995 runway giving us the collection date for this piece. Everything starts with the fabric choices on this one and the cut of the dress is there to simply support those choices. The body of the dress is a metallic lace that has a brilliant array of fall feeling colors. A deep brown lace is finished with a metallic thread that changes from deep coppers and russets to shades of gold. The colors flow into each other in a beautiful mix and cover the dress from just under the empire cut bodice to the extended train at the back. The skirt scoops and under the high set bodice and there is a metallic taffeta ribbon in a deep copper that sits between the bodice and skirt that is finished with a bow at the front. Above that is the bodice and it is done in a pure golden lace. An intricate pattern of flowers are subtly woven through the bust fabric. It is predominately gold but there are also delicate pink toned flowers in there as well. The dress flows to the ground, widening as it nears the hem and it has a longer train at the back. It is just exquisite. Excellent condition. Fully lined black with a satin lining through the bodice area. It closes with a hidden back zipper and snaps close the gold lace of the bust area over the zipper. Tagged a 38. Bust: 16.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Under bust seam to natural waist: 14" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 19" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 13" from top of bodice to waist Skirt: 45" from waist to hem at the front, 52" to longest point at the back hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML Please send us a note if you would like to see this reference photo: F/W 1995 Christian Lacroix Runway Collection.
