Jacques Heim psychedelic print silk cocktail dress. circa 1960s

About the Item

Jacques Heim is inextricably linked with the history of French fashion. In the years 1958-1962 he was the president of the highly influential Paris Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture (the central body overseeing French haute couture). A period which also coincided with the world of Parisian couture shifting to the new world of ready to wear. Jacques Heim believed that fashion would thrive through change and adaptation. Although he exhibited none of the flamboyance or temperament of competitors like Yves Saint Laurent, he was steadfastly modern and created designs that are smart, eclectic and of many styles yet always luxurious and elegant This multicoloured slightly baby-doll dress constructed a raw silk material is a perfect example of Heim’s feminine and sophisticated aesthetic.
